Want Flocabulary to shout out your school in The Week in Rap? Then enter...
THIS WEEK'S CONTEST
For a shout-out on Friday, November 7, entries are due Thursday, October 30 at 6 P.M. EDT.
Coin a new word.
The Oxford English Dictionary, the "definitive record of the English language," updates regularly to include new words. Language is constantly evolving, and new words are coined all the time. For this week's contest, write a dictionary entry for a word of your own creation. Whip something up from scratch or use Greek or Latin roots, prefixes or suffixes to give your word a little history.
Looking for inspiration? Check out entries from previous winners and runners-up on our blog.
Note: Students, your teachers must submit for you. Any video submissions should be horizontal.
By entering the contest, you agree to comply with the Official Rules.
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, school, city and contest entry.
HOW IT WORKS
Each Thursday evening, we'll announce the week's contest challenge on this page (and in your Week in Rap email). You have a week to submit your entry. The contest closes when we post a new contest at 6 P.M. Thursday night. Winners will be notified on Friday by 12 noon, and they will have one week to submit a video or photo to be included in the Week in Rap video with the shout out.
We'll shout out the winner's school in the next Week in Rap video (two weeks after the initial contest was posted)!
A little fine print: You must be 18 years or older to enter the contest. Teachers and parents can submit on behalf of their students and children, and can submit as many times as they'd like. By submitting a photo or video that features any students, teachers are agreeing that they’ve obtained parental consent to have the likeness of their child posted on the internet in a way that’s accessible by the public.
