Highlight Your Chapter's "Route to Success" with the 2015 Chapter Video Contest!

We've expanded the popular chapter video contest to include TWO options to highlight your chapter's achievements!

1.  “Route to Success” Video 

Submit a video that highlights your chapter’s “Route to Success.” What have you done throughout the past year that has developed your chapter, fellow FFA members, and community? The top three videos in this category will be shown in Beasley Coliseum during pre-session at convention!

2.  “Freestyle” Video

This is an open category to show off your creative skills, and of course your chapter! The top videos in this category will be posted on the Washington FFA Facebook page to determine the Fan Favorite, based on the total number of likes, comments, and shares!

CONTEST RULES

Due: May 8th by 5pm to abbie@washingtonffa.org. 

Use WeTransfer.com to send your video file.

Chapters may submit one video for each category. The video should be no longer than 3:00 minutes exactly. If your video is longer than 3:00 minutes, it will not be considered for the competition. 

Technical specifications: please film your video in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio) format. Don't hold your cameraphone upright, or you'll film a vertical video that is sideways! The final file type should be MOV or MPEG-4. Absolutely NO Windows Media Files will be accepted.

Scoring

All videos will be evaluated on the following criteria: 

  • Overall video quality (including audio)
  • Message (what story are you telling in the video?)
  • Creativity and originality
  • Chapter involvement/participation

Important note on copyright: DO NOT use copyrighted music or other material in your video, as it will prevent us from posting the video online. Examples of improper use of copyrighted material: creating a “music video” in which chapter members lip sync to a popular country song; or using a pop song as a background track in your video. We strongly encourage you to use purchased or free stock music tracks and video footage which have been made available for commercial use.
