More than 180,000 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 awards contest in each participating country.
The national winners are recognized by Panasonic's global Kid Witness News program at http://www.panasonic.com/global/corporate/kwn.html. More details on the 2016-17 global program will be available at a later date.
Although KWN represents students from around the world, the messages in their videos have common themes, reflecting the world they live in and what affects their everyday lives. Through these videos, we are able to see "The World Through Their Eyes".
