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:

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
