Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) October 20, 2009 - DreamBox Learning, an award-
winning, educational software company today announced the kick-off of its "Dream Big" video contest for families and classrooms. Contestants are eligible to win a grand prize of $1,000 in cash or multi-month individual and classroom subscriptions to DreamBox Learning K-2 Math. DreamBox.com is accepting online video submissions now through November 30, 2009 with all entrants receiving a free, one-month trial of their online math adventure program.
The "Dream Big" contest calls on kids to imagine their career dreams and submit a video on what they want to be when they grow up. The videos will be posted on DreamBox.com as well as YouTube, with public voting on the best submissions. In addition to public opinion, DreamBox Learning has appointed a panel of judges to review the most popular submissions and determine prize winners, to be announced on December 15, 2009. Family and classroom contestants are strongly encouraged to have fun and focus on the contest theme rather than video production quality as winners will be judged on content and creativity.
