Want Flocabulary to shout out your school in The Week in Rap?
For a shout-out on Friday, January 27, entries are due Thursday, January 19 by 6 PM EST.
Quote a Character
This week, we covered President Obama's Farewell Address, in which he quoted the character Atticus Finch from the novel To Kill a Mockingbird. He said, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from their point of view." For this week's contest, we want you to imagine you're giving a speech to the American people. What fictional character or novel would you quote in your speech. Why? You can write your response as a short paragraph, or you can write it as a rap.
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 email@example.com, including your name, school, city and contest entry. If a teacher is submitting more than one student entry, please submit all entries in a single email.
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 PM EST 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.
