Heidi’s Sing-Along Song Video Contest Posted on 02 Jan 16:59 , 0 comments

Submit a video of your students singing and performing one of your students favorite songs… and win some CD’s and DVD’s for the whole class to enjoy!
I get so many little videos from teachers proudly showing off their kids singing along to one of my songs, that we thought it would be fun to make a contest out of it! So for the month of January, we’re putting together a little contest that will get everyone in on the fun.
Here’s how to enter:
1: Check with your parents and principal to see if there are any issues with shooting and posting the students likeness to an educational blog. My parents get a kick out of seeing their kids on our website, but sometimes you’ll get a parent who is “undecided” about media issues like this, and it’s best to involve them in another activity during this time.
2: Have your class choose their favorite Heidisongs song from any of the CD’s or DVD’s, then pull out your Digital Camera, Digital Video Camera or even a Cell Phone, any device that shoots video that you could pull off and email easily. Be sure to use a tripod or brace yourself well, since many of these devices don’t handle motion very well, and we want to see your classroom at it’s best!
3: Send us the file with the following information: Your name, your school, and the state your in, plus an email address that we can contact you with. If the file size is larger than about 1mb, we use a service called MailBigFile (http://free.mailbigfile.com/) to easily send large files up to 200mb. If you have any questions, just drop us a line at [email protected] and we’ll help in any way possible.
That’s all we’ll need. We’ll post them to the Heidisongs Resource Blog site (http://heidisongs.blogspot.com/) and as they come in and hope you’ll comment on you’re favorites! We’ll announce the winners in early February. The Grand Prize winners may even get a spot in one of Heidi’s presentations this year, and a featured location on the website, showing off just how great your class is!
Prizes Include:
–– 1 Grand Prize:
* One of every item in the Heidisongs catalog or $250 credit toward your choice of product*
–– 9 Honorary Mention Prizes:
* Two CD’s or DVD’s from the Heidisongs catalog or $30 credit toward any other product*

Contest open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, 18 years or older.

Contest Runs From January 1st, 2010 to January 31st, 2010, so get those cameras running!
