Want Flocabulary to shout out your school in The Week in Rap?
For a shout-out on Friday, September 11, 2015, entries are due Thursday, September 4, 2015, by 6 P.M. EST.
Take It to the Big Screen
True events — from the sinking of the Titanic to the creation of Facebook — often inspire Hollywood films. But you've probably noticed that the movie versions tend to stretch the truth or add fictional elements for added drama. This week, we want you to choose a story covered in the Week in Rap that you think would make a Blockbuster movie.Create a poster or video trailer for this imagined film. Along with your movie promotions, tell us why you picked that news story and how your movie would be different from the actual event.
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.
