What R U Doing? Delta Science Fellows Video Contest
The Delta Science Fellowship Program is sponsoring a video contest among current and former Science Fellows. The contest is open to all Fellows funded by the Delta Science Program between 2003 to 2012. The goal of the contest is to provide the public an engaging look behind the scenes of Delta Science research through YouTube videos of 3 minutes or less in length.
Delta Science Program and California Sea Grant staff will review videos and select the winners. Three cash prizes of $1,000, $750 and $500 will be awarded. Entries must be uploaded to YouTube by the Fellow. Send an email with a link to your YouTube video entry, your name, Delta Science Fellowship project number and title, and cell phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m., August 1, 2012.
Winners will be announced on the Delta Science and California Sea Grant websites and will be personally notified. Prizes will be awarded by September 4, 2012. At the discretion of Delta Science Program staff, all or some of the submitted videos may be linked to the Delta Science Program website: http://www.deltacouncil.ca.gov/science-program and may be featured at the 7th Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference.
- Videos should be up to 3 MINUTES and show what you are doing/did in your Delta Science Fellowship project.
- All video submissions should start with a question about your project that is answered in your video, such as “What am I doing in the Delta to help endangered species?” Your video should then answer the question. Show us through any creative method.
- All videos should end with your name and relationship to the Delta Science Program (e.g., former Delta Science Fellow.)
- No copyrighted music or images may be used in the videos.
- Judges will base their decisions on your ability to convey basic scientific content to a general audience, originality and entertainment value.
Additional rules: Video content may not include unlawful activities; use threats, violent comments or harassing language; include content deemed inappropriate by Delta Science Program staff; employ a false identity of another person, or share personal information about an individual (including their full name, address, phone number, etc.) without their permission.
If you have any questions, please contact CA Sea Grant's Communications Director, Marsha Gear at email@example.com/ 858-534-0581.
