On occasion I receive requests to do text link advertising or promote something lame on my blog, but when I was recently contacted by Cory O’Brien from Guerilla PR about a new school video contest called “Be the Change! Share the Story!” it gave me pause. It seems like a worthy effort; therefore, I will encourage you to visit Quantum Shift TV ( http://www.quantumshift.tv/schools) to learn more about a cool contest to empower students and raise awareness about social and environmental projects.
Be the Change! Share the Story! challenges students in grades 1-12 across the United States and Canada to create and document their social and environmental projects on film. Besides helping to make a difference in the global community, winning schools will receive over $200,000 in cash and educational resources.
Students will document their progress in two short videos, and then the videos will be voted on by the students themselves, with an entertaining puzzle game woven in to encourage them to learn more about each other’s projects.
For more information, please check out the electronic press kit at http://www.quantumshift.tv/schools/press/ There you’ll find the official press release, videos, images, embeddable media, sample stories, and more.
