The students will create a video to share with the community and with potential donors expressing the mission of AquAbility ? to provide swimming for adults, youth and veterans with disabilities. The students will research AquAbility, visit local AquAbility programs, and create a video that will show share how this meaningful and needed program is changing lives for people with disabilities in our community. The video will inspire people to invest themselves and their dollars in this local non-profit.

The produced video will be shown during the local ?Idaho Gives? celebration. Idaho gives is a statewide day of giving to Idaho non-profits. May 1, 2014 is the day for this event. The local event will happen somewhere in Ketchum, at which there will also be some local and regional media. Students involved in this project will do some research about AquAbility, attend local programs (Wood River, Gooding, Boise) to observe, videotape, and become personally connected with the program and the participants in it. The result will be a short video, and a longer version to be used in different situations.

he students will be involved in the first use of the video for the Idaho Gives event on May 1, 2014.

The video needs to be complete by April 15, ready to use for the Idaho Gives Day on May 1, 2014. Students will come to the local Wood River Valley AquAbility sessions as many times as necessary for videotaping, and make one or two trips to Gooding to the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind Program on a Wednesday morning.
