Kid Witness News

What is KWN?

KWN (Kid Witness News) is a global video education program supported by Panasonic, with the aim of boosting creativity and communication skills and fostering teamwork through video production by children at the elementary and secondary school levels.

More than 175,000 children around the world have participated in the KWN program since it first began in the U.S. in 1989. Panasonic lends video production equipment to schools for student video productions. Videos created by the students are submitted to an annual countries´/regions´ awards contest, with prizes awarded in over ten different categories, including news, documentaries, dramas, commercials, etc.

In 2004, an international category was created in the contest for the first time, taking the competition global. In keeping with this growing number of participating countries/regions, the KWN Global Contest has been held annually since 2008. As of March 2015, around 5,000 children from 553 schools in 19 countries/region around the world have participated in the past year.
