More Connected & Collaborative than Ever
Focusing on digital content creation across social channels, the annual Content Generation Workshop (CGW) connects students from across the country and delves into a range of topics from engagement to visual branding and from video production to copywriting. It’s a unique opportunity for student content creators to connect, network, and collaborate in real-time. It’s also an important touchpoint for instilling digital responsibility and digital citizenship in today’s content creators. In doing so, we hope to garner even more momentum for our mission to make social media a force for good in learning environments all over the world.
Attracting Students Nationwide
The Content Generation Workshop is a hybrid event, hosting both in-person and virtual attendees with live presentations broadcasted in a real-time livestream from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and through satellite host locations across the country. From Quick Hit Challenges to live sessions and from guest speakers to live content contest submissions, the Content Generation Workshop is a truly immersive, hard-hitting event unlike any other.
Join us virtually from anywhere in the world, at the main event in Lincoln, Nebraska, or in-person at a satellite location. Hosted at approved venues by Class Intercom partners, satellite workshops allow us to bring more students together for more enriching in-person experiences. Note: Student teams must have an adult chaperone in order to attend a CGW workshop event at the Main Event site or a Satellite Location.
The Content Generation Workshop has welcomed a variety of speakers with rich histories, experiences, and backgrounds.
We’re honored to provide a platform for these innovators, business professionals, storytelling, and civic leaders to share their stories with students in a way that exposed them to the power, responsibility, and impact of content creation.

Challenging Students & Schools to Create Content in Real-Time
CGW features a number of hands-on opportunities for student content creators to think outside the box and put their skills to the test. Quick-Hit Challenges, for example, push students to explore content around a certain theme, creating it and submitting it to social channels in real-time. Students apply what they’re learning, work together, and then get to see their work alongside the work of students at other schools all over the country. The result is a uniquely collaborative and challenging environment that reflects the learning, growth, and innovation happening through student content creation in unique ways.
