Image placeholder title

Do you have a child with strong opinions (ha! don't we all). Is he also interested in movies? There's a new search for five kids to become official KIDS FIRST! Film Critics. The five lucky winners – who will each serve a twelve-month term as an official KIDS FIRST! Film Critic – will be sent to Red Carpet events and advance film screenings where they will review new family films, interview celebrities, and blog about upcoming films. Did we mention a $10,000 scholarship too?

Everyone who enters has a shot at a $10,000 college scholarship courtesy of Stepping Stones Entertainment, which will be awarded to the film critic who writes the best review of The Velveteen Rabbit.

The overall focus of the program is to teach children healthy media habits, as well as strong critical thinking, writing and public speaking skills that will stay with them for a lifetime. The KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Search runs through October 20th and is open to children between the ages of six and 15. To enter, applicants must submit both a written and videotaped review of one or more of the seven official KIDS FIRST! Film Critics' Search titles: Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Furry Vengeance, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Secret of Moonacre, Jumping for Joy, and The Velveteen Rabbit.
