Dec. 12, 2013 — Middle and high school students are creating video entries for a PBS year-in-review contest using Meograph, a multimedia storytelling tool developed by Misha Leybovich, a 2013-2014 Reynolds Fellow at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute.

Meograph allows users to combine video, audio, photography, text, maps and timelines in one place. Leybovich launched Meograph in 2012 and continues to improve the tool during his fellowship.

PBS NewsHour Extra is sponsoring the contest in partnership with Google, which produces an annual video — Year-End Zeitgeist — of the year’s most popular online searches. The PBS competition, called #MyZeitgeist, asks students to use Meograph to compile events that made the biggest impact on their lives.

The contest deadline is Saturday, Dec. 14.
