Vocab Videos: Vocab Film Festival Winners!


As you may know, Vocab Videos latest contest, The Vocab Film Festival, has officially come to a close. The Festival was a tremendous success with students, filmmakers, and entire classes submitting their very own vocab videos and photos–we received more than 100 submissions! The Vocab Videos team would like to give a BIG thank you to everyone who got involved, whether it was by making your own entry or voting on your favorite submissions and nonprofits organizations. Our four amazing affiliated nonprofits–Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, Harlem Children’s Zone, Urban Word NYC, and Year Up–earned more than 3,000 votes!

Because we had so many AWESOME submissions, choosing our grand prize winners was an extremely difficult decision, but the votes are in! A panel of judges including members of the Vocab Videos team (who know their vocabulary!) and a special guest judge in the film-making industry helped choose the big winners. Drum roll please…..check out the impressive winning entries (more…)

The Vocab Film Festival: Closed but Not Over…

As of June 1st, the Vocab Film Festival is officially closed. The Festival invited students and filmmakers to create their own vocab videos, and participants proved more than up to the challenge. We received 100+ video and photo entries! A BIG thanks to all who participated either through submitting entries or voting on their favorite videos & photos.

But even though the Festival is no longer accepting submissions or votes, a big portion of the contest has yet to come–the GRAND PRIZE CEREMONY! Student and filmmaker finalists are competing to take home the top prizes; a special judging panel will be deciding on the winning finalist entries (with the exception of the People’s Choice Award, which is based solely on votes), and it will certainly not be an easy decision.
