Project Description

The BBB Student Video Contest is an interactive contest designed to engage young people and encourage the creation of high-quality user-generated video content.

Students will use creation and promotion skills, have the opportunity to interact with local PR and advertising professionals, and have the chance to win cash prizes for their school and team.

 

How does the contest work?

Teams or individual students from select schools, compete based on quality of video production, delivery of the theme and key messages, and successful promotion and marketing of the videos.

Submitted videos will be judged based on students’ ability to follow the contest guidelines and market their videos to get maximum votes.

The videos will be scored by BBB and a panel of judges.

Finalists will have the opportunity to present their work to a panel of judges (PR and advertising executives).

Below is a detailed description of the contest guidelines and structure.
