Students Can Enter Video Competition
FOX 50 (WRAZ-TV) has launched the first-ever "FOX 50 Lip Dub Project," giving local high schools the chance to show off their creativity and possibly win a cash prize.
Inspired by the hit show "Glee" and the YouTube sensation, the project is a fun and educational television and Web competition for students and their schools.
Students work together with teachers to conceive and produce a music video lip-syncing the words of their selected song. Adding to the excitement, the music video must be shot in one take with no editing allowed, other than inserting the music track over the video.
Videos must be submitted online at www.FOX50.com by clicking on the "Lip Dub" link. Following the entry period, viewers will have the chance to vote for their favorite high school video.
The top three local high schools that receive the most online votes will receive a grant donation for their school. The second place runner-up will receive $2,500, the first place runner-up will receive $5,000, and the high school with the most votes will win the grand prize of $10,000.
The entry period continues until April 13. Online voting begins April 25, running for two weeks.
The project is open to all public and private high schools located within the following North Carolina counties: Chatham, Cumberland, Durham, Edgecombe, Franklin, Granville, Halifax, Harnett, Hoke, Johnston, Lee, Moore, Nash, Orange, Person, Sampson, Vance, Wake, Warren, Wayne and Wilson.
The "FOX 50 Lip Dub Project" is sponsored by the Goodwill Community Foundation.
