Culver City, CA (Vocus) October 12, 2010 —
SheKnows (http://www.sheknows.com) and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (http://www.sonypictures.com/homevideo/) announced today the launch of ‘The Karate Kid School Challenge’ which invites parents, faculty and students of any United States elementary, middle or high school to submit an essay about how their school could benefit from a $5,000 athletic scholarship program.
With no charge to enter, ‘The Karate Kid School Challenge’ asks users to submit an essay up to 250 words or less on how their school could benefit from a $5,000 athletic scholarship program. After the entry phase is complete, the essays will be judged and the top 15 finalists will be announced on October 18th. The 15 finalists will then be voted upon by the SheKnows community and the two schools with the highest number of votes will be announced on November 3rd each winning a $5,000 athletic scholarship for their school.
The program is timed alongside the release of The Karate Kid on Blu-ray and DVD, which are both in stores now. The DVD includes behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film Just For Kicks, Chinese lessons, as well as the music video for the film’s hit song, “Never Say Never,” in which Smith sings with teen pop sensation Justin Bieber. The Blu-ray contains exclusive bonus features which include an alternate ending where fans can watch Jackie Chan fight, Production Diaries hosted by Jackie Chan and an interactive map of China which shows all of the amazing locations the movie was shot in. The Blu-ray Disc™ also contains movieIQ™+sync, a new and immersive BD-Live movie watching experience that uses a connected real-time movie database. With a movieIQ enabled Blu-ray Disc and an Internet connected Blu-ray player, movie fans can dive into continuously updated information on the cast and crew while exploring relevant trivia such as production facts, music and soundtrack information, all tied to scenes within the movie. Additionally, movieIQ+sync gives viewers the full movieIQ experience on their computer or iPhone by linking to the Blu-ray disc.
The Karate Kid is now available for $28.96 SRP for the DVD, $34.95 for the Blu-ray and $38.96 for the Blu-ray Combo Pack.
