Over at the blog Through Our Window… Room 101, they’re running a contest for K-12 student bloggers. The theme is December, and you can interpret it any way you like. They suggest:
- Post the history of your favorite Holiday this month. You must include the historical background, personal experience, and a picture or video to accompany the post.
- Depending on where you may be in the world, December may be a warm month or a cold one. Create a post about your favorite thing to do during this month, whether it be in the snow or on the beach! Don’t forget to add a video or picture that enhances your post.
- Current event post. Create a post that discusses an event going on in the world during this month. Don’t forget to include your opinion on the issue you discuss.
- Your choice! You can choose any topic you would like to blog about as long as it relates in some way to the month of December (this could be about a sport that takes place during this month, a famous event in history, a family tradition, or anything that comes to your mind).
- A creative piece! You can write a poem, short story, draw a picture and explain it, or anything creative as long as it relates to the month of December.
What caught our eye is that the promo for the contest is a short video made with the free trial version of Moviestorm. So we got to thinking - why not make your entry in Moviestorm and submit a short video piece? You could do a simple piece talking to the camera, but you could set it somewhere unusual, or maybe bring in extra people. You could tell a story about your family Christmases or your favourite December holiday. If you’re writing a poem, you can bring it to life in so many ways - you could perhaps add in music and include Christmas carols. You can easily throw in special effects like snow or fireworks - the creative possibilities are endless!
You could even do it with the free trial version - there’s no need to spend anything to create your mini-movie. And, since you can try any of the content packs free for a week, you could also grab the new Happy Holidays pack for all those seasonal extras - Santa, snowmen, Christmas trees, presents, or even snowball fights!
