Want Flocabulary to shout out your school in The Week in Rap?
For a shout-out on Friday, September 9th, entries are due Thursday, September 1st by 6 PM EST.
Each week, the Week in Rap brings you important stories drawn from world news, national news and news in science, tech, sports and entertainment. To cover it all, we focus on the main ideas of each story. For this week’s contest, we want you to become a special correspondent for the Week in Rap. Expand on our coverage by researching one of the stories from this week’s rap. You can read the Lyric Note and linked article to learn more about it. Then, write at least six lines of rap to provide more details about this event. For help coming up with rhymes, you can use Flocabulary’s new Lyric Lab. 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.
