Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!
That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.
Do you mind passing my message along to your HS colleagues again?
Okay! I'm helping MIT run a nationwide contest to get kids to make videos about SAT Vocab. We're looking for short videos about 1-2 min in length. To see an example, check out our contest website @ BrainyFlix.com.
Once the videos have been submitted, we'll allow viewers to vote on the videos, and we'll award $600 in prize money to the video that receives the most number of votes. $200 of the prize will go directly to the winner(s) and $400 to the class or school club chosen by that person(s). To further encourage participation, we'll give away 1 free iTunes song for every 5 videos a contestant submits or refers (up to the first 1,000 video submissions).
We have begun accepting video submissions! Other important dates are shown below:
- Video submission ends: 3/16/2009
- Voting opens: 3/23/2009
- Voting ends: 4/5/2009
- Winners announced: 4/13/2009
Hi Carol. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
