STUDENT VIDEO CONTEST

The North Central Weed Science Society decided to sponsor the video contest again this year to provide students an opportunity to showcase their research and/or extension projects. Videos should be submitted to one of two categories: 1) Research or 2) Extension/Education.

Submission in the research category should include videos from basic weed science research (greenhouse/field/laboratory research) conducted by a student. Extension/education submissions may present applied research-based information that is relevant to the agriculture or horticulture professional audiences, growers, consultants, and other stakeholders. Videos should be prepared in a professional manner and approved by student’s faculty advisor. Videos will be limited to 5 minutes and will be judged based on the grading rubrics attached to the email. Each contestant can enter two videos (one in each category) and can win only one award. Videos will be judged by a committee and winners will be awarded at the NCWSS annual meeting in December. You can find the rubric here.

Videos should be submitted to the Chair of Extension Committee, Debalin Sarangi, by end of business, Monday, November 5, 2018. Please submit the videos via the file-sharing system (e.g. Dropbox) and notify the Chair of your submission via email (dsarangi2@tamu.edu). In the same email, the presenter should also mention whether they are giving permission to the NCWSS to publish their videos on the society webpage and YouTube channel in the future.
