Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to use a specific video platform for my blog entry?
No! You can use whatever platform or technology is easiest for you – including Flip Grid, Youtube, and Vimeo. The only requirement is that you can generate a link to a video. Due to file size restrictions, we cannot accept an mp4 file through the submission form.
Can I submit a written essay instead of a video?
Yes, you can submit a traditional essay or a voice recording if you are unable to do a video. However, the judges will give preference to video essays.
Can I submit more than one entry per student?
Go for it! Just please make sure that you include a release form with each entry.
