Futuremaker video competition begins fourth year
Grab a video camera and get your creativity on! The Futuremakers Video Competition is back for a fourth year. The competition is just for students and is free to enter. Students get to compete for cash prizes of $2,000, $1,500 and $1,000.
Simply visit www.wearefuturemakers.com and check out the easy instructions for the contest. Then make a short video (three minutes or less) about how you and WITC are making your future happen (we want to know about your technical college experiences and how your college impacts your future) and upload it to the Web. Complete a short registration form, and that’s it.
Do you need assistance producing your award-winning video? Stop in at the Educational Technology Center on your campus (Ashland students should go to the LRC). You can use the video editing software, and the ETC staff can answer your questions about video production and uploading videos to YouTube.
One semifinalist from each college will advance to the state for the three grand prizes. Videos will be judged on creativity, originality of presentation, effectiveness of communicating your Futuremaker experiences and weighted online votes, so you’ll want to tell your friends and family to vote.
“I look at the Futuremaker video as a chance to showcase what WITC offers. It is my chance to be the face of the first impression we can give students who may want some insight into programs we offer,” says Dustin Wolvert, who claimed top honors among WITC students two years in a row. “I wouldn’t make the videos if I didn’t believe in the teachers. I believe in the school. I believe in myself, and I believe in a positive future.”
The deadline to enter a completed video is 11:59 p.m. February 29, 2012.
