COLUMBUS, Ohio, November 2012 – UCT (United Commercial Travelers) is sponsoring a video contest for schools with programs for people with intellectual disabilities or universities with programs to train special education teachers. And the winner will receive $10,000! That’s right, $10,000! The contest is open to schools in the U.S. and Canada.
Do you know of or work with schools for people with intellectual disabilities or universities with programs to train special education teachers? Then let them – and teachers, parents and concerned individuals – know about this opportunity and encourage them to enter. Here’s how:
- Create a short video up to two minutes long
- The video doesn’t need to be professionally filmed – use a video camera or Smartphone and keep it simple!
- Explain how the $10,000 would help your program
- Post the video on YouTube and complete the contest form at UCT’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/UCTinAction by clicking on the “UCT Gives Back” tab
All entries must be submitted by November 30, 2012.
Video finalists will be posted on UCT’s Facebook page January 14-February 15 for fans to vote on the winner. Fans can vote once per day, every day, throughout this time! The winning school will be announced and awarded the $10,000 cash prize in March 2013. See http://www.uct.org/uct-gives-back-official-rules/ for contest rules.
