ProjectEd is celebrating diversity in our communities with its brand new “Who’s In Your Neighborhood” video contest. Taking a look at the different people in your cities, who do you see? An assortment of personalities, ethnicities and backgrounds that makes our country a great place to live. Now it’s time to hone your video skills and create a visual definition that speaks to this diversity. Ready? Here we GO!
Grab one of the following vocabulary words: eccentric, martyr, paupers, contemporaries, adherent, pariah, philosopher, vagabonds. You’ll be creating a 1 minute or less “video definition” that not only tells a story, but also shows the viewer the exact meaning of the word. In other words, you MUST display, at appropriate points, the word, its part of speech and definition, and an example sentence. Check out the sample below for some quick inspiration.
“Devilment” by Garrett Fallin
ProjectED is going to be awarding 2 videos a $1,000 grand prize. That’s right! If you are 13-17 years old, you are eligible for the youth grand prize. If you are 18 and over, then you could very well win in the adult category. Be sure to head over to the contest page to get the full list of details and definitions. Good luck!
