Springville-Mapleton DUP

The Springville-Mapleton Company of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers is looking for high-quality documentaries of pioneers to use in its museum. They must be portrayals of the families and individuals that came to this area before May 10, 1869. Films must be based on pioneer histories and stories, and can even be about their artifacts. The group hopes to bring the pioneers “to life” by showcasing these films to people who visit the museum.

The films can be up to eight minutes long and must be submitted by noon on Saturday, April 15. Cash prizes of $250 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place will be given.

Get your group ready and have fun telling their stories. Start your research by visiting the DUP’s museum at 175 S. Main in Springville and pick up a free book about Springville’s history. (Mapleton was part of Springville at that time.) We are open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m.

If you are interested in participating, send an email to let us know how many people are in your group. We will need the name of each person in your group and their T-shirt size. By submitting an entry, you give permission to the DUP museum to show and upload your film. This means that all content in your film must be owned by you or you must have permission to use the media (music, pictures, etc.) within your film.

When your video is complete, upload an H.264 file to Google Drive and email us the link no later than noon on April 15. A panel of judges will select the top three films, which will then be viewed and awarded on April 27 at 7 p.m. at the Springville Pioneer Museum, 175 S. Main.

Send questions, group information, and video submissions to: SpringMapleDUP@gmail.com.
