The Art of StorytellingMeet 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 WinTo 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!
