Want Flocabulary to shout out your school in The Week in Rap?
For a shout-out on Friday, December 11, 2015, entries are due Thursday, December 3, 2015, by 6 P.M. EST.
Expression through Art
This week, we covered multiple stories about horrific acts of violence that were carried out by ISIS in Paris and Beirut and on a Russian airliner. Events like these can leave us with a range of emotions, opinions and questions. Your task this week is to create something in response to the recent terrorist acts in any medium you'd like. It can be a rap or a different kind of song, a poem, a drawing or different piece of art, a letter or any other means of expressing yourself. In addition to your feelings and thoughts on the events and how the world has responded so far, we also want you to include questions you have about what is happening and anything specific you'd like to know more about.
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. 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 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.
