Local employers, educators, and students will serve as judges.
Videos will be scored based on:
At minimum, videos must include: an introductory title frame, information regarding essential knowledge, skills, and abilities, career pathway information (high school, post-secondary, and employment opportunities), local, regional, and/or state employers, and video credits. Additional content/information can certainly be included! Be creative!
One important part of career exploration is engaging with people in the field. We strongly encourage students to visit with employers/people in the field in order to learn more about the work environment, opportunities for advancement, required knowledge, skills, and abilities, etc. Interviews will earn extra points!
The total time from the start of the introductory title frame to the end of the credits must be between 1-3 minutes. Please include a 3-5 second pause between the end of the title frame and the beginning of your video. Any videos that do not fall within the 1-3 minute timeframe will lose points in the scoring criteria.
We have a few listed on our website but feel free to explore additional sites!
The introductory title frame should include: campus name, sponsoring teacher's name, career cluster, and entry name. This information should be provided at the very beginning of the video as it will be used by the judges to identify the entries. The entry name should clearly identify your group, especially if the teacher is sponsoring multiple entries.
We welcome the students' creativity in producing their video and they are welcome to highlight one specific career or cover the cluster broadly.
We know some schools are already at work creating videos related to careers (ex: RUS grant) and welcome schools to use and expand upon their existing content.
