Rules and Regulations

Video must be about one of the following topics: health, education or economy. The video must explain the topic, and how it affects our society today, what has been or is being done towards it, and why the topic is important to you. The main goal of this contest is to raise awareness of the topic you chose. The video can be from a minimum of 1 min to 2 minutes max. It can be done in teams of up to 3 people, but the amount of reward money will remain the same if a team happens to win a prize (i.e. there will be no $100 prize per team mate if they win first place, etc). A script/voiceover is welcomed, but not required. However, there must be a thorough explanation of the topic regardless of choice. (If a script is decided to be used, it must be originally written and submitted with the video since the judging panel will revise for plagiarism. Paraphrasing and quotations are allowed so long as the sources are cited). The video submissions must be submitted online on the CACTES Association website. We will not accept submissions after 12:00pm Monday, June 17th 2017.
