SWOSU Plans Best Kept Secret YouTube Video Contest


SWOSU is sponsoring another YouTube Video contest with cash prizes being awarded to the top videos.

Theme of the contest is "SWOSU's Best Kept Secret." Baxter Stewart, student assistant from Fairview in the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, said students are in charge of telling what they like about SWOSU that most people don't know about.

"We chose this theme because it should generate some great ideas for videos plus Frank Warren, the creator of Postsecret.com., is coming to SWOSU in November, so this ties in nicely," Stewart said.

Deadline for entries is November 16. Videos must be no longer than 60 seconds. Rules are available at http://www.swosu.edu/students/YouTube-contest.pdf

The first place prize is $150, while second and third places are $100 and $50, respectively. The SWOSU Foundation is sponsoring the prize money.

To enter, send the video link to news@swosu.edu or bring a DVD to the SWOSU PR & Marketing Office in Room 205 of the Administration Building on the Weatherford campus.
