BBB High School Student Video Contest Offers Cash Prizes

November 17, 2017

Better Business Bureau (BBB) annually sponsors a video contest open to all students in grades 9-12 who reside in Nebraska, South Dakota, The Kansas Plains (all counties in KS except Franklin, Johnson, Leavenworth, Linn, Miami and Wyandotte) and Southwest Iowa (Cass, Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie and Shelby counties). Cash prizes will be awarded to students and their schools for entries receiving first and second place. Winners, if they are home-schooled, will designate a community nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization to receive the matching funds.

Students may enter individually or form teams of two to four participants. Five hundred dollars will be given to the creator(s) of the winning video, and $500 will be given to their school. In addition, $250 will be awarded to the second place video, and $250 will be given to their school. Winners will be determined by how well the entry adheres to BBB’s brand, expresses the theme "Start With Trust,” the quality of the video’s production and how many times it’s been viewed on BBB’s YouTube channel.

This competition provides an opportunity for high school students to creatively learn the values of BBB - trust, honesty, reliability and objectiveness – and challenges them to discover how these values can be applied in their everyday lives. Contestants will also gain valuable marketing experience because they are challenged to get the most views on YouTube by promoting their video on social media. Aside from the benefit to the students, this is a wonderful opportunity for their schools.

The video submission deadline is Friday, February 2, 2018, and the winners will be notified on or before March 1, 2018.
