Announcing the 2019 Kid’s Video Challenge! Make your own video and recreate your favorite movie scene! The Entry deadline is closed, but read on for details.

While there are numerous members of the community who have fond memories of The Wallace at its height, our youngest guests have yet to see it in that same way. Through this challenge we hope to foster a connection between the The Wallace and the youth of West Texas and begin to create their own memories.

Participants will develop creative and artistic skills. They will create a vision and work to achieve goals through filming, editing, and submitting a video they have created.

We will host an “Oscars” Themed party in October to screen the videos and present awards for videos selected by our film judges. There will also be a People’s Choice Award for donations made to the Wallace on behalf of each video. The money raised from this challenge will help fund the needed repairs to the roof of the Wallace Theater. The most important thing is to have FUN! Someday these same children will be able to enjoy The Wallace the way their parents and grandparents did, and the Wallace Legacy will live on!

how it works

  • The “director” (person entering a video) will choose a scene from their favorite movie and record themselves and their friends or family acting it out. An example of what your video could look like can be found here and the original scene that it was made after here.

  • Submitting the video along with a $10 entry fee will enter the director into the contest. Click the button below to enter!

  • All of the videos will be voted on by donation and ranked by judges. Links to videos will be shared on the Wallace Facebook Page so that they may be shared with friends and family to be voted on.

  • Winners will be chosen based on video quality and creativeness. There will also be a People’s Choice Award for the amount of money raised through voting by donations. Each director will set his or her own fundraising goal of $100. Each director and his/her family will be invited to a private awards event and screening where the winning videos will be announced and all of the videos will be shown on “the big screen”!

  • The entry deadline is Friday, August 16, 2019 at 7PM. (This means paying the entry fee.)

  • Actual video submissions will be accepted until Sunday, September 1st at 7PM.

  • Online voting for People’s Choice will start on Monday, September 9th at 8AM and run until September 30th at 7PM.


Prizes will be distributed at the awards event and screening in October. Each director’s video will be shown and each the director’s name will be listed on a commemorative plaque to be displayed inside The Wallace. The two top prize winners will receive a $100 Amazon gift card and their video will be featured in the trailers preceding movies shown at The Wallace for a whole year! There will also be awards given based on acting, creativity, costumes and more. You don’t want to miss this!
