You Too Video Contest
Your objective of this contest is for you to give advice to incoming students about living on campus. Videos are to be between 1 and 5 minutes long. They should be fun, energetic, and give the incoming students an idea of on-campus life. Videos should be clear and convey your tips, hints, tricks, and advice. Students are encouraged to wear past campus event T-shirts such as: Orientation/class photo shirt, Homecoming, Parade of Nations and Multicultural Festival, Make A Difference day, Gay Fine By Michigan Tech, and other Huskywear. Videos can be entered in two categories: individual and group. A group consists of at least 3 people or more actually appearing in the video. You must be a current student/staff/faculty member to be eligible for prizes. Alumni are not eligible for prizes but are encouraged to submit videos to provide advice to incoming students.
Video equipment is available for checkout from Jeremiah Baumann, in 155W Wadsworth Hall. You can email him at to put in a request for equipment. Editing software can be downloaded from the website or you can utilize other labs on campus. YouTube also provides an editing package once you have uploaded your video.
