Summer Research Challenge

This contest is open to grades K-12. It begins on June 9, 2014 with the launch of a YouTube video series (but you can join throughout the summer--it's never too late to research!). Submissions end on August 25 and winners will be announced September 8.

We know it's summer and summer is about having fun. So we want you to have fun with this project. What would you do if you could do anything? What will you become an expert in, and a creator of? We'll accept videos, songs, fine arts, poetry, written papers, or anything else you can think of that tells the story of your work.

Prizes for the three projects that receive the most votes!
1st Prize: $100 gift card
2nd Prize: $50 gift card
3rd Prize: $25 gift card
