“My G.R.E.A.T. Experience” Video Contest
G.R.E.A.T. officers work with students from a variety of backgrounds who have different
stories, experiences, and skills. Many officers could give examples of the technologically
and artistically talented students at his or her school(s). Most likely, these students
are the same ones who enjoy posting things on Web sites such as YouTube or Google
To encourage this talent, G.R.E.A.T. is sponsoring a video contest. The contest
is titled “My G.R.E.A.T. Experience.” It is geared toward G.R.E.A.T. elementary
and middle school students with a special or creative story to demonstrate how the
G.R.E.A.T. Program has impacted the student’s life.
The national winner and up to three (3) family members will be flown to the 2008
G.R.E.A.T. National Training Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. The student will
be given the opportunity to speak and present the video to several hundred G.R.E.A.T.
officers, school personnel, and other attendees.
Video submissions must be postmarked no later than May 15, 2008. G.R.E.A.T. officers,
please remind your students of this deadline. Complete rules, instructions, entry
forms, and a link to a poster to display at school are available on the
G.R.E.A.T. National Training Conference Web site.
