The idea is simple… make a video; upload it as instructed by December 10; collect and cash the check (*IF you’re good enough, of course!)

Note that this contest has been designed for groups as well as individuals – submit a video on behalf of your campus InterVarsity chapter, or your campus green club or just you and your roommate.
