After the success of the Plotagon Animated Video Storytelling Contest we are back with another interesting contest to keep school students engaged.
Announcing the nation-wide DIYA – Do-it-Yourself Video Contest!
DIYA – the Do-it-Yourself-App brings school students; an opportunity to showcase their creative and ‘do-it-yourself’ skills to the world and win attractive prizes.
DIY-project stands for – ‘do-it-yourself’ project. This covers a wide range of projects ranging from science and history to mathematics and geography. For the scope of this competition, show yourself working on creating something. It could be a portable windmill or a detailed origami-based car or the demonstration of how a volcano erupts. No limitations to your creativity or your thoughts. Let your imagination soar!
Here’s what students need to do to participate:
Download DIYA from the Google Play Store.
Sign-in to the app with your Google or Facebook Account.
Shoot and upload a video of yourself working on a DIY-project.
Instructions if any; should be in English.
Note that the system accepts videos in MPEG-4 format up to 50 MB in size (roughly 3 to 4 minutes). So if you have a longer project video, upload it in multiple parts, sequencing and numbering them appropriately.
One complete project video earns you 2,000 reward points. These points can be redeemed in mid-2017 for attractive goodies.
Note – All videos are moderated and then published on to the DIYA video-library.
This contest runs from November 12 to November 20.
The students uploading the top three videos get attractive prizes.
There are separate prizes for the most popular video based on the number of likes and shares received by the video.
Write to firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries.
We firmly believe in the ideas propagated by the ‘Maker Movement’ that gives preference to learning by doing. Students have brilliant ideas and thoughts that need to be encouraged and students should be motivated to ask questions, build things with their hands and supported in their creative pursuits. DIYA will evolve into the largest library of user-created DIY-videos and we hope students, teachers and parents from around the world will join us in our quest to help students evolve into creative thinkers, doers and ideal global citizens.
