Show Your Stuff!

Promotional Video Contest

Isn't it time for your 15 minutes of fame?

The Greater Newport Area Chamber of Commerce and the Newport School District are teaming up to present a "Show Your Stuff" video / photo montage contest. High school students will be invited to submit 60-120 second videos showcasing the participating Chamber member of their choice. The videos will then be judged at a community viewing party in mid-March, 2013.

Student teams will compete for $200, $100 and $50 cash prizes for 1st-3rd places, along with a trophy and bragging rights, of course. The top entries will be featured at the Chamber's Annual Gala, shown on Channel 9 and the Chamber's website and Facebook page.

We are excited about this opportunity for students to work more closely with our community and to use their technological skills and creativity to showcase our local businesses and organizations.

To have your business / organization featured in a video, you must:

  • be a Chamber member
  • by January 8, 2013 end of day, submit a "one sheet" [follow the link to our website below] that describes your business/organization, main contact person, guidance for students on areas you'd like to be focused on, etc.
  • agree to contribute $50 towards the student prize pool [you only pay if your business/organization is chosen by a student team to be the subject of their video]
  • agree to participate in an initial meeting with the student team who has chosen your business/organization in order to give them guidance on the video and, if applicable, share any photographs, logos or video content you would like incorporated
  • agree to attend the viewing party in mid-March, 2013 where the final submissions will be shown and judged.

Students will review the one sheets and choose which members they would like to work with by mid-January, 2013. Once the teams and their projects have been finalized, student teams will then will have 8 weeks to complete and submit their videos.
