Discovery Education and the Foundation for Rural Service have partnered to launch the Connected Community Contest, a program that invites teachers and students in rural U.S. communities to create videos comparing and contrasting their community with a rural community in another part of the world.

The Connected Community Contest is open to classes in grades 4-12 from schools located in rural communities of 50,000 or less as defined by the United States Department of Agriculture. To participate in the program, classes should visit the Connected Community Contest website,

The deadline to submit videos for the Connected Community Contest is March 15, 2013. The grand prize winner will be announced at the end of April 2013. For more information, visit
