Education Connection has just launched a one-of-a-kind video contest for scholarships and other prizes. Participants can win tuition and cash for college by submitting an original video about Education Connection or a mashup of Education Connection Commercials. The grand prize winner will receive $2,000 in tuition to the college of his/her choice and $1,000 cash. The first place winner will get $1,000 in tuition and $500 cash. The second place winner will receive an Amazon Kindle for reading e-books and other digital media. Plus, the winning video will be considered for a national TV commercial.
Contestants can download the original music and lyrics of Education Connection commercials and use any combination of those in a video or create an original video (with or without music). Participants are encouraged to be funny, creative and outrageous, keeping in mind that videos should be suitable for all ages to watch.
All eligible videos will be available for votes at the contest Web site and can be viewed on the Education Connection YouTube page. Those that receive the most votes from the public will become finalists for a second round of voting by a panel of judges. Videos may be submitted at any time through 11:59pm (Pacific Time) August 9, 2009.
Participants must be U.S. citizens, 18 years of age or older, and are encouraged to read all the contest rules before entering.
