Document Historic Arlington

Are you an Arlington County high school student? Are you interested in storytelling and videography? Do you want to earn money creating a documentary? Each winter, we open applications for the Document Historic Arlington project, an after-school program that runs throughout the spring. We choose three qualified interns based on certain criteria, including interest in filmmaking, documentaries, and the Arlington community. 

Interns spend their time, under the guidance of staff members, learning and creating a short documentary for Arlington County. The documentary will be featured on Arlington Independent Media's TV stations (Comcast 69 and Verizon 38), as well as the County station. It will also be used for educational purposes throughout Arlington. Learn about history, creatively tell the story, and put your stamp on how we pass it on.

Upon completion of the documentary, interns are paid $500 each. 

This year's application to Document Historic Arlington has been closed, but please revisit the application in 2018 if you have missed this year's deadline.
