Have you ever used the words or ideas of another person as if they were your own? Well my friend, then you may be guilty of plagiarism. But you are not alone; history is littered with examples of plagiarism by famous people. Sometimes plagiarism happens because people don’t fully understand the definition of plagiarism. Intended or not, plagiarism is never a good idea. We need your help:

Create a short film (90 seconds or less) that conveys the definition of plagiarism.

Your video must:

  • define plagiarism using the definition provided below
  • last no longer than 90 seconds
  • display, at appropriate points, the word and its definition
  • include credit for anyone else’s words or ideas used in the video (but you already knew that, didn’t you?)

Plagiarism (noun): using another person’s words or ideas without crediting the original source.

Examples of plagiarism, provided by www.plagiarism.org:

  • Turning in someone else’s work as your own
  • Copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
  • Failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
  • Giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
  • Changing words by copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
  • Copying so many words or ideas from source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not

Prizes will go to creators whose videos help students make the right choices when it comes to giving credit where credit is due. Thanks for helping us prevent plagiarism before it begins!

Submission requirements:

In a video, no longer than 90 seconds, you must:

  • Clearly and accurately demonstrate the meaning, pronunciation and correct usage of plaigiarism using the definition provided.
  • Display the following as text on screen at appropriate points during your video:
    • The word and its part of speech (noun, adjective or verb).
    • The definition of the word.
    • The word used accurately in a sentence that describes the actions in your video.
  • Meet all official rules and requirements.

Key Dates:

  • June 16, 2014 – Contest opens
  • July 14, 2014 – Last day to submit your video (by 11:59 p.m. ET)
  • July 28, 2014 – Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. ET
  • On or around August 11, 2014 – Winners announced on the Project ED website

Finalist and Winner Judging Criteria:

Videos will be evaluated based on the following criteria, weighed equally:

  • Educational merit and accuracy: Your video achieves the educational goals presented in the contest brief and viewers learn intended material from your video.
  • Creativity and engagement: Your video presents educational content in a memorable way; viewers are compelled to watch the video to completion. Does your video convey its message in an artistic, creative and innovative way?
  • Quality of video production: Your video has high resolution and audio quality, effectively employs visual aesthetics and cinematography and demonstrates production skills.
  • Appropriate content: Your video does not contain indecent, obscene, hateful, defamatory, or offensive material.

In the event of a tie, the tie will be broken on the basis of the tied entrants’ scores in the “Educational merit and accuracy” criteria.

Prizes:

Prizes per contest vary. In most cases, a grand prize will be awarded to one video in the ‘Youth’ category and one in the ‘Adult’ category. All entries are categorized by age of the submitter. Submitters under the age of 18 are placed into the ‘Youth’ category and submitters 18 years or older are placed in the ‘Adult’ category. All prizes with the exception of the 'Viewer's Choice' award are chose by a panel of judges. In the case of winners under the age of 18, prizes will be awarded to a legal parent or guardian. Rules for each contest explain how and when we will notify you and the date the prizes will be announced. Prizes are awarded at Amplify’s discretion and are subject to the applicable district and school policies. Prizes for teachers may be awarded via DonorChoose.org.

In this contest we will be offering one adult grand prize, one youth grand prize, three finalist prizes, one honorable mention prizes, and one viewers choice prizes. All prizes amounts are in USD where applicable.

Official Requirements:

  • The video’s creator must be 13 or over.
  • Entrants who are minors must obtain a parent’s or guardian’s consent to enter the contest.
  • You must use appropriate language and content.
  • You must properly clear and credit any source film clips, images, or locations you use. To verify winning entries, participants will be asked to submit proof of proper clearances.
  • You can only submit one entry per contest.
  • If you are employed by a school you must ensure your entry into this contest is in compliance with your institution’s policies.
  • Please carefully read the complete rules listed in the Contest Terms.
