• You do not need to declare which category you want to be judged in.  Your submission will qualify you for all of the above categories.
• The videos will be screened by a judging committee for quality and accuracy of content.  Of those selected to move forward, winners will be chosen by popular vote (students, faculty, staff, and community members will be encouraged to vote).  Exception: Faculty in the departments that are sponsoring an award will choose the winners of their scholarship (Computer Science, Technical Communication, Petroleum Engineering, Biological Sciences)
• It’s possible for one entry to be chosen as the winner of multiple categories.
• Scholarship prizes are Montana Tech scholarships and are not transferrable to other colleges.  Scholarships will be applied to the students’ account next academic year.  If the scholarship amount exceeds the amount of the student’s bill, the student will receive the remainder of the scholarship in the form of a refund check.
• For all scholarship prizes, we reserve the right to not award the scholarship if no high-quality videos are submitted. 
• Deadline for submissions is March 29, 2013 at 5:00 pm.
