Student videos could win up to $500 in annual contest

CHARLESTON — Creative students could win as much as $500 for developing a video about the U.S. Constitution as part of a video contest sponsored by the West Virginia Department of Education and the West Virginia State Bar.

Participants are asked to create a 3-minute video with the theme “We the People: The Constitution in Our Lives.” The videos will be placed on YouTube. The contest is open to West Virginia residents in sixth through 12th grades. Entries will be divided by middle school and high school. First place in each category receives $500, while second place wins $250. The creators of the first place videos also will be invited to attend The West Virginia State Bar’s annual meeting on May 10 at Stonewall Jackson Resort.

Videos will be judged based on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and overall quality. Entries must include parental permission for those under the age of 18. Students interested in entering the contest can fill out an application as well as read the rules at http://wvde.state.wv.us/wvstatebar. Submissions for 2013 will be accepted through March 31. Last year’s winning videos also are posted on the website.
