Already, a dozen videos and 150 entry forms have been submitted by students hoping to win up to 60 credit hours of free tuition. Through October 21, Valencia is sponsoring a video contest for original videos that make best use the theme, “Why College? Why Valencia?”
The contest is open to all current Valencia students as well as former students who attended the college in the last five years, so long as they are at least 18 years old and U.S. residents. Videos must be no longer than three minutes in length and must be produced in a standard video format (see contest rules for details).
To submit your video, go to the contest website (www.facebook.com/valenciacollege), complete an entry form and upload your video.
All entries will be posted on Facebook, where viewers can later vote for their favorites. Five winners will be selected by a panel of judges from the videos that get the most votes. The winners will be announced on Nov. 15 and their winning videos will be featured on www.valenciacollege.edu, Valencia’s homepage.
Valencia hopes to use the contest to draw attention to the personal stories of its students and inspire others to complete college, while offering the ultimate incentive to five lucky winners – a free education.
