Gambling Awareness Nova Scotia (formerly the Nova Scotia Gaming Foundation) is pleased to announce its 2011 Student Scholarship Video Challenge!
The challenge is an opportunity for graduating Grade Twelve high school students to think critically about gambling issues relevant to youth. To apply, students must create a 3-minute video that debunks a common gambling myth: "It's easy to make money playing poker."
Gambling Awareness Nova Scotia will award Student Scholarships to the top applicant(s) in two categories. For team submissions, the scholarship will be equally divided among the teams' members:
• Judges' Choice - $2,000* CAD - A panel of judges will select their top video pick based on pre-selected criteria
• Viewers' Choice - $2,000* CAD - All videos will be available for viewing online at facebook.com/GamblingAwareness. The video with the most 'likes' at the close of the Video Challenge will be deemed the Viewers' Choice top video pick!
The Video Challenge deadline is May 27, 2011, at 4 p.m.
Please help us spread the word by forwarding this email and encouraging your friends and family to visit TogetherWeCanWin.ca and facebook.com/GamblingAwareness for more information and application instructions.
