More for TEENS...This was sent to be my freind Vonda and I thought I'd share it with you:
Sarah Anne Sumpolec and I are co-directors of an awesome opportunity for 16-18-year-olds and we’re trying to get the word out about it. It’s a subset of the new Gideon Media Arts Conference and Film Festival for adults, but this is specifically for teens. Since it’s about teaching teens how to promote a Christian worldview through the media (screenwriting, directing, producing, television, movies, radio), and your new book was about the scripting of their lives, I thought perhaps you might mention it somewhere along the way.
As you’ll see below, the window of opportunity for the students to apply is October 15 through December 15 for the April 2008 conference, so we need to get the word out ASAP.
It’s truly an opportunity for committed teens to learn from some of the best in the Christian media arts industry.
Thanks for any help you can give us.
The Gideon Media Arts Conference and Film Festival—Where Art and Purpose Meet
The Gideon Media Arts Conference and Film Festival (www.lifeway.com/gideonmediaarts) is a five-day conference for anyone interested in promoting a Christian worldview through the creative/media arts. Within this conference, Sarah Anne Sumpolec and I are honored to be co-directors of the Gideon Intern program for students 16 to 18 years old. We are excited about the opportunity for selected students to learn from some of the most notable Christian leaders in the movie, television, film, radio, and church drama industry. Participation in this program will be by invitation only. Applications will be accepted October 15 through December 15.

We would appreciate your help in getting this information to Christian and homeschooling students across the country. Please feel to contact me with any questions.
