The submission must be free of all watermarks, third-party logos, or non-PCS Edventures marketing. Entrant is encouraged to be creative and original with the video production answering the question “How would you use drones for good?” Dr. Alec Couros, a professor of educational technology and media posted “10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects” – http://educationaltechnology.ca/2127. This is an excellent resource for video production ideas. Brand products are not allowed as part of the video production setting, props or background. No copyrighted materials may be used unless sourced from public commons. Others may assist and participate in the video production with the full understanding that these rules apply to them as well. Videos containing cursing, defamation, vulgar language, hate speech, property destruction, violence of any kind or any other act deemed irresponsible and outside of PCS Edventures’ scope of conduct will not be accepted or eligible for entry.

Within 48 hours all entries will be reviewed by the administration, entries that meet the Contest rules will be approved and displayed on the website.
