K-State Book Network (KSBN)

Video Contest

The K-State Book Network (KSBN), as proud sponsor of The Hunger Games, announces a new contest for the District of Kansas State University!

We are holding a video contest for you and your fellow students. This will be a wonderful opportunity for you to express your creative side by developing a video that will tie in with The Hunger Games.

The Contest

Create a “guerrilla style*” video that shows your knowledge or understanding of the book. Be creative! Create a “behind the scenes” look at the games, underground news shorts about the life in some of the districts, a book trailer, or a video blog of one of the contestants. The sky’s the limit!

*guerrilla style means creating something fast with low/no budget, simple props, and simple technology (cell phone, hand held video camera, etc)

The Rules

  • Video must be 3 minutes or less in duration.
  • Video may be done individually or collaboratively.
  • The video should demonstrate deep knowledge of the book.
  • Entrants should adhere to the YouTube Community Guidelines.
  • By entering your video in this contest you grant K-State University and the Kansas State Book Network license to archive your work.

How to Enter

Upload your video to YouTube and then email the link and your contact information to ksbn@k-state.edu.

At the same time, email ksbn@k-state.edu with the title of your video, the name(s) of your group members, and contact information.

How to Win

The video entries will be reviewed and evaluated by the Committee (made up of K-State faculty and staff). One winner will be announced on October 15, 2010 (sorry, there is no second place; after all, only one winner walks out of the contest arena in The Hunger Games).
