Where Technology and Art Collide
The DIGIES is an annual digital media festival run by the School Library System of the Genesee Valley BOCES. The DIGIES encourages students to be active creators of digital media and celebrates their achievements.
Our mission is to strengthen digital media skills in schools, higher education, and professional institutions. To achieve this, the School Library System, in collaboration with Model Schools, provides professional development via an annual conference day for teachers, school librarians, and public librarians who work with K-12 populations. By offering workshops facilitated by professional digital media artists, professors, and experts, we help teachers utilize tools to get students actively learning and creating media.
The 2020 conference day has been postponed. The 15th annual DIGIES festival will be held virtually in the spring of 2021. Certificates and medals will be sent to schools and institutions to distribute to the winners.
