College in America – Tell Your Story

For 75 percent of college students in America, it is anything but a straight line. Most students do not go straight to college after high school, live in a dorm, and graduate within four years. This has prompted three media companies to band together to create a video campaign. The groups are seeking students (20-30 years old), who want to tell the world what it really takes to make it through college. Students and graduates interested in a casting call should check out the Take America to College website.

Five students will be selected, including one person who will be picked by the online audience. The rest will represent a range of student experiences, such as people taking courses online or looking to complete a certificate for an immediate instead of four-year degree. Winners will receive $500, a video camera, and an all expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
