Be creative and show off A Slice of Your Life!

How to Enter

  1. Film a creative, original video that’s 1 to 2 minutes long. This video should demonstrate how, as a student, you think, “there’s more than one way to peel an orange.” Take it literally, or don’t – it’s up to you! Just be sure to answer the question, “What makes you a unique learner?”
  2. The explanation of your identity as a unique learner must be clear. Either list the concept in the title of the video or explain it in the video itself. Upload your video to YouTube, and tag it using the hashtag #MindTapOrange. 
  3. After uploading your video to YouTube, submit your entry via the form on the Cengage Learning “A Slice of Your Life” video contest website before midnight EST on Friday, April 19, 2013, and include the URL of your YouTube video in the form.

Selection of the winner

Entries will be judged by a qualified panel of independent judges, based on the following criteria:

  • Originality and creativity
  • Overall appeal
  • Quality and completeness of answer to “What Makes You a Unique Learner?”
  • Creativity
  • Memorability
  • Audio/visual quality
  • Overall impact

The independent judges will select five finalists whose videos will be featured on the Cengage Learning YouTube channel starting Monday, April 29, to be voted on publicly to determine the ultimate prize winner. The contestant whose video receives the most likes wins!

The winners will receive their scholarships paid on their behalf to the institution at which they are currently enrolled as a student for the Fall 2013 semester or quarter.

    The entry form asks entrants to check wether they have read the contest rules but there is no link to the contest rules.
