Meridian Stories is a series of digital storytelling competitions for schools in the US. Each competition challenges teams of students to create short-form stories using images, words, video and music. The goal is to help teachers creatively engage students with the curriculum through competitive /collaborative storytelling that capitalizes on the technological and co-creative tools of this generation’s culture.
