Hey there! It's fantastic that you're looking to submit your short film to student film contests. I can suggest a few festivals and contests that are known for showcasing student work and providing opportunities for budding filmmakers like yourself.

1. National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY): NFFTY is an annual film festival held in Seattle, which focuses on young, up-and-coming filmmakers aged 24 or younger. They accept a variety of film genres, including narrative, documentary, animation, and more.

2. Campus Movie Fest (CMF): CMF is a national student film festival that takes place at various college campuses throughout the United States. Participating students create short films within a week, and selected films are showcased at a red carpet event.

3. All-American High School Film Festival (AAHSFF): AAHSFF is an annual event specifically for high school filmmakers. They accept a wide range of film genres and have various categories and awards for participants. AAHSFF takes place in New York City, but you can submit your film online.

4. CineYouth Film Festival: CineYouth is a film festival presented by the Chicago International Film Festival. It aims to celebrate the creative works of filmmakers aged 22 and younger. The festival award categories recognize a broad range of skills and talents in filmmaking.

5. Fresh Films Fest: Fresh Films is an annual event held in Prague, Czech Republic, dedicated to celebrating student films. They accept a variety of genres and focus on highlighting emerging filmmakers' talents.

Remember that there may also be regional or local student film contests and festivals happening near you.
