Class of 2015 Video Challenge!

Your mission: 

We’re having a video contest, starring YOU! 

In 60 seconds or less, we’d love to see you demonstrate your enthusiasm for Oberlin. Go all out: sing, dance, draw, compose a poem, make a recipe, write a theorem, skip, jump, shout, or whatever tickles your fancy, as long as you can fit it into a short video to share with us. 

How to Participate:

1. Express your enthusiasm for Oberlin in a video of 60 seconds or less.

2. Upload your video to Youtube, give it a cleverly awesome title, and tag it with “Oberlin” (you can tag with other things too!).

3. Send us your video link via our submission form.

4. All video submissions are due by 11:59 pm EDT on Sunday, June 12th, 2011.

Bonus: Post your video to the Oberlin 2015 Facebook group to show off your hard work!

Things to remember:

  • Make sure you only submit your own work!
  • We appreciate many forms of self-expression, but we aren’t particularly fond of slurs, cursing, or comparing Oberlin to other schools by name.
  • Only one entry per person.
  • This contest is only open to the class of 2015 (this includes the incoming double-degree kids that will start with this year’s class).

Our fabulous prizes:

1st place - an iPad

2nd place - an iPod touch

3rd place - an Oberlin sweatshirt 

Every person with a valid video submission will receive a free ticket to the Apollo, our historic local movie theater!

Our fabulous judges:

  • Ida Hoequist ‘14, Oberlin blogger
  • Will Georges '12, senior admissions intern 
  • Jesse Hernandez, Assistant Director of Admissions
  • Jeffery Pence '88, Associate Professor of English and Cinema Studies
  • Ma'ayan Plaut '10, Social Media Coordinator

We will select our favorite videos based on the criteria of creativity, personality, and “Obieness’” (interpret that however you’d like). Our top 10 will be submitted to the entire 2015 incoming class for voting on the final winners.

For this contest, they are seeking compelling and thought provoking films that challenge preconceptions about fossil fuels, especially natural gas, and a total of ten videos will earn cash rewards. Open worldwide, 14 and older. Submit a storyboard by March 5th to receive feedback from Shell, otherwise final videos are due April 30th.
