Want Flocabulary to shout out your school in The Week in Rap?
For a shout-out on Friday, November 4, entries are due Thursday, October 27 by 6 PM EST.
Give a Nobel Prize in Literature
This week, we covered the winner of this year's Nobel Prize in Literature. Singer and songwriter Bob Dylan is the first musician to win this award, which has historically been given to poets, novelists and short-story writers. For this week’s Shout-Out Contest, we want you to choose an artist who you’d like to honor with a Nobel Prize in Literature. Write a poem, rap or paragraph about this artist and why they deserve the award. Send us at least six lines or sentences. You can use Flocabulary’s new Lyric Lab for help coming up with rhymes. Learn more about Lyric Lab here.
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.
