On Wednesday May 10th, Digicom Learning was awarded a $25,000 Spotlight Grant from the H.N. & Frances C. Berger Foundation. Representatives from the foundation, Digicom, CBS Local 2, and DSUSD were on hand as the grant was awarded in the Impact Production Lab. 

The grant will be used to help with Digicom outreach, which will directly benefit the Impact pathway, beginning with a 5 day intensive screenwriting workshop for students this summer. After summer, Digicom Learning will also assist Impact with the development of an after school filmmaking program and building a strong pathway with the FAME Media Pathway at Thomas Jefferson Middle School. 

Digicom will also be featuring Impact student work at the Digicom X High School Film Festival on May 24th at the Palm Springs High School Theatre.
