NEW YORK (Oct. 18, 2017) – Budding actors, actresses and film directors have an opportunity to show their film making chops by entering the 2018 MyStudySyncTV contest, hosted by StudySync. To enter, teams of students collaborate to produce a five-minute video for any text or skill in the StudySync library that does not already have a StudySync® TV or SkillsTV episode. Teachers then submit the student-created videos by May 1, 2018.
Teachers can guide students with the MyStudySyncTV unit available in the product. The Unit engages students in a comprehensive activity that addresses reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking skills necessary to develop a successful StudySync TV-styled video. Student teams must script, film, and edit their episode, all while ensuring that it effectively delivers the lesson they intended.
StudySync’s curriculum and production team will screen the video submissions. Prizes of a $500 Amazon gift card for classroom supplies will be awarded to one middle school teacher and one high school teacher with the winning student submissions. Recognition is also given in the categories of Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Direction. Students that are part of an award-winning submission or are recognized for either the Best Actor/Actress role are also invited to submit an audition tape to be considered for a future StudySync TV episode.
“I love this contest. The level of creativity and quality of these student videos is so impressive,” said Co-Founder and CEO of StudySync, Robert Romano. “I’m really looking forward to reviewing this year’s submissions and helping choose the top contenders in each category. It’s like the StudySync TV academy awards!”
