The California State University Center for Community Engagement’s student video contest showcases the impact students have in the community and how their service learning impacts them. It’s also the first phase in the celebration of the CCE’s 15-year anniversary.
Eligible entrants must be full-time students at a CSU, have a minimum 2.0 grade-point average and belong to a student club or organization that has at least one year of community service. Entrants may submit a video no longer than two minutes that conveys personal, compelling experience with service learning, community engagement or community service (specifically, how your involvement is shaping you into an active and engaged citizen, and how it will enhance your future endeavors). Email the video as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with the video’s title in the subject line and contact information (name, phone, email address, mailing address, CSU campus of enrollment, year and major) with a brief description in the body of the email. Also, “like” the CCE on Facebook.
Entries are due no later than 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14. The CCE will choose 10 videos that the public will vote on via YouTube. Voting will take place from 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, to 9 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4. The four students whose video receive the most “likes” will be the winners.
