GB Video Competition: Want to Win a Brigade Scholarship?
Have you ever struggled to explain what Global Brigades is to your family, friends, or potential volunteers? We know that it can be difficult, but so important, to find the words and resources to perfectly explain what it is like to take part in a this international movement of empowerment and sustainable development, which is why we need your help! Starting January 30th, we are launching a new competition, and the best part? YOU could win a brigade scholarship! All you have to do is submit a video.
Here are the top three finalists from the previous Video Competition!
These finalists earned their spot for many different reasons: their videos included staff and community member perspectives, told a captivating story, and were creative! We also enjoyed that these finalists highlighted the positive impact made through Global Brigades, provided information with data from M&E, had good quality audio and footage, and utilized the GB Brand Resources.
We need your help to encourage more people to get involved in the Global Brigades movement! The videos you submit can be about the Holistic Model, a specific brigade program, The Empowered 100, or anything else that would be resourceful to future GB Chapter Leaders and brigaders like yourself. We want your videos to tell a story or have a central theme so that it can inform future volunteers what Global Brigades is all about! The videos can be film-based, drawn, graphic design, or animated, the more creative the better.
The top three videos will be featured on the Global Brigades Youtube Page, and the winner will earn one brigade scholarship. Global Brigades Staff will utilize the competition rubric to choose the best three videos, and then it will be up to the public to vote for the winner! The winner out of the top finalists will be based on which video receives the most likes, comments, and shares. You have until 11:59 pm on October 23rd to submit your video. Questions can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include ‘VIDEO COMPETITION’ in the subject line. Happy creating!
