SHOW US A SLICE OF YOUR LIFE! CONTEST


There's more than one way to peel an orange and there's more than one way to learn. Join our contest by submitting a short, one- to two-minute video.

Get creative! In your video, show us what makes you a unique learner who values a personal learning experience. A $2,500 scholarship will be awarded to the best story, with the runner-up winning a $500 scholarship!

In a world full of apples, give the world an orange. Be creative and show us A Slice of Your Life!

 

How to Enter

1. Make a creative, original video that’s one to two minutes in length. In the video, show us how you interpret that as a student, “there’s more than one way to peel an orange.” Take it literally, or don’t – it’s up to you! Just be sure to answer the question, “What makes you a unique learner?”

2. The explanation of your identity as a unique learner must be clear. Either list the concept in the title of the video or explain it in the video itself. Upload your video to YouTube, and tag it using the hashtag #MindTapOrange. 

3. After uploading your video to YouTube, submit your entry via the form on the Cengage Learning "A Slice of Your Life” video contest website before midnight EST on Friday, April 19, 2013, and include the URL of your YouTube video in the form.
