Meet Me at the Corner's Video Podcast Contest

Want to be the next Steven Spielberg? Make a video and submit it to Meet Me at the Corner's Video Podcast contest by February 29, 2008 for your chance to win $250!

The Art of Storytelling

Meet Me at the Corner is an interactive site that thinks videos are a good way of telling stories and revealing interesting facts from all corners of the world. They encourage kids to express themselves through video submissions, and will even edit them for you for free and post 'em up on their site as video podcasts! This year, Meet Me at the Corner is holding its first video podcast contest to find out what's going down in your corner of the world!

What You'll Win

To enter the Video Podcast contest, you must be seven to 13 years old. All you have to do is interview the most interesting person you know and capture it on video! Choose five questions to ask him/her and keep your video limited to a maximum of 15 minutes. It must also be free of any copyright materials, music and photos. Viewers - kids and teens your age - will check out your video podcasts and vote on their favorite. If your video is picked, you'll win $250 in cash!

Submitting Your Video

Videos must be submitted on a Mini Digital video tape, with the title of your video written on the MDV case. If you don't know how to make a video, then click here for some tips. You'll also need to fill out three permission forms - a Parent's permission form, the Interviewee's permission form, and a Child's permission form. Make sure you include all three forms with your video, and send it by snail mail to:

    Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
