How it works
First, register and submit your video. To get started, register your school. After registering, create and submit a video no longer than 3 minutes that tells us how your school would use Dell technology to enhance the learning experience.
Promote for the Top 10. (June 17-July 14). After you've submitted a video, start spreading the word to get promotion. Friends and colleagues will need to register, login and click the "like" button on your school profile page. The more "likes" you earn, the more it helps you in the judging phase. Any registered person can promote once a day until 7/14. From 7/15-7/21 our judges will select the Top 10 videos based on the criteria in the official rules and their promotion score. Want tips on promotion and how to make a video? Check out the promo kit!
Vote for the winner. (August 2-August 13). On 8/2 we'll announce the schools that made it into the Top 10. Once again, reach out to faculty and friends, because now it all comes down to popular vote. Voting works the same as promotion: Each person will register (if they haven't already), login and vote once per day. The school with the most votes wins the grand prize!
Winner announced (August 18). The winning school will be announced on 8/18. From there, we'll consult with the winner to determine the best way to integrate the technology into their classroom and make it ready to use. Take a look at the prize page to learn more details.
