Showcase what you love about UMC in a short video! There are separate contests for domestic students and international students.
Each contest has three categories:
1. Show and tell us about your major and the faculty who teach.
2. Show and tell us what "Small Campus. Big Degree." means to you.
3. Show and tell us what you like best about UMC--what are your favorite places or activities or who are your favorite people?
First place prize: $100 for each category in each contest (a gift card for the UMC Bookstore). Second and third place prizes will also be awarded. Additional grand prize for best overall video: lunch with Chancellor Wood.
Contest rules: Videos should be no more than two minutes and preferably around one minute each. Students may submit a video in any or all of the three categories.
By submitting a video entry, those involved (the student submitting the video and anyone speaking in that video) give UMC permission to use the video for promotional purposes and to post the video on official campus social media and other websites.
It is expected most videos will be shot with cell phones rather than professional equipment. Judging will be based on video impact, quality, and length. International videos can be in native language, English, or combination of both.
Videos should be uploaded to students' University YouTube accounts.
How to upload videos for UMC video contest:
1. Go to YouTube.com - in upper right corner sign in to YouTube using your University google account
2. In upper right corner choose upload.
3. Change Public to Private, and add email@example.com as "Share to" e-mail address like this
4. You will receive a confirmation e-mail that video was received.
Entries may be submitted now through Noon on Monday, February 2. Winners will be announced no later than Friday, February 6.
