The Kid Witness News (KWN) is Panasonic’s hands-on video education program for children around the world.
Every year contests are held in each country/region, and the winners then take part in the KWN Global Award Ceremony..
Once again in 2016, many films that captured society from the children’s unique point of view were submitted.
And the carefully selected films were presented at the Awards Ceremony held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during the Paralympic Games.
From this year, the submissions were divided into “elementary school” and “junior high and high school” categories, and from among 371 schools in 18 countries and regions that submitted films about “communication,” “eco,” and the newly added theme “sports”, 7 finalists came together for the Awards Ceremony, and a Grand Prize winner was announced.
This video introduces what children learned and experienced by producing their films, through the eyes of the project manager.
The video also explains how Panasonic has prepared for the Awards Ceremony in order to give the children
"an experience only Panasonic can provide."
