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:

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
