Once in a while, a story becomes so meaningful that it is treasured for generations. We selected four of the greatest tales ever told for this short video contest: a high-seas adventure, a dramatic romance, a coming-of-age story, and a tale of morality and manners. Which will you choose?

Choose one of the following three books and create a video that fits one of these categories:

  • Book Trailer: A video that, like a movie preview, gets potential readers excited enough to run out and pick up this book right away
  • 60-Second Scene: A re-enactment of a critical scene from the book
  • Dramatic Reading: A powerful reading of an excerpt from the book that brings the text to life.

THE BOOKS!

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Synopsis: An enormous white whale, a determined hunter, and a compelling narrator comprise one of the greatest American novels of all time.

    • Book Trailer: A video that, like a movie preview, gets potential readers excited enough to run out and pick up this book right away
    • 60-Second Scene: A re-enactment of a critical scene from the book
    • Dramatic Reading: A powerful reading of a passage from the book that brings the text to life.
  • Display the book’s title and author on screen at appropriate points during your video.
  • Meet all official rules and requirements.

Key Dates:

  • On or around September 3, 2015 – Winners announced on the Project Ed website

Finalist and Winner Judging Criteria:

Videos are 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 entrants’ scores on the “Educational merit and accuracy” criterion determines the winner.

Prizes:

Prizes vary per contest. In most cases, a grand prize is 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. A panel of judges awards all prizes, with the exception of the “Viewer's Choice” award. In the case of winners under age 18, prizes are awarded to a legal parent or guardian. Rules for each contest explain how and when we notify you and the date the prizes are 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 offer one youth grand prize, one adult grand prize, three finalist prizes, and one viewers choice prize. All prizes amounts are in USD where applicable.

Additional Requirements:

  • The video’s creator must be age 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, we ask participants 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 complies with your institution’s policies.
