To accommodate the needs of its participants, Frostburg State University is extending the deadline for its YouTube contest, “Frostburg: Take 5,” which invites students and FSU alumni to create a video that expresses what they love most about FSU in five minutes or less. Those who wish to submit an entry now have until Friday, March 7.
FSU’s YouTube crew is also adding a new and convenient way for students and alumni to submit contest entries—participants can now simply post their videos online at FSU’s very own Frostburg: Take 5 YouTube group at www.youtube.com/group/FrostburgTake5. To enter the contest, the participant joins the Frostburg: Take 5 YouTube group and e-mails a contest entry form to email@example.com.
“Posting entries directly on the Frostburg State University YouTube Channel also opens the door to the possibility of doing a Viewer’s Choice award, where viewers get to watch the clips online and rate their favorites,” Ramspott said.
Following the deadline March 7, five winners will be chosen by a panel of judges that includes Emmy award-winning TV writer/producer and FSU alumnus Greg Garcia. The best clips will be shown during a special screening at Frostburg’s Palace Theatre in April. The top five contestants will be awarded various prizes; the first-place winner will receive a Canon ZR830 Mini DV Camcorder and all accessories, generously donated by FSU grad Ed DeWitt of DeWitt Camera Centre in Cumberland.
“Frostburg: Take 5” is jointly sponsored by FSU’s Division of Communications and Media Relations and the Department of Mass Communication. To learn more details about the contest, visit www.frostburg.edu/take5.
