NEC Display Solutions Launches $25k Video Contest

Leading IT company NEC is using WizeHive’s contest platform to give students something to get excited about! As the 2014 school year comes to a close, NEC is offering a $25,000 technology makeover to the school most deserving of a tech overhaul including new desktop monitors, large-screen LCD displays, and projectors.

NEC Display Solutions of America recently launched their Tech Makeover contest for K-12 schools on WizeHive’s Video Contest Platform. Schools are encouraged to submit a short video showing why their institution deserves a technology makeover before the contest’s May 6 deadline.

The contest opened early last week, but there’s still plenty of time to put your winning submission together!

A panel of judges will narrow the field by selecting 10 finalists, one of whom will win the grand prize determined by a public vote which runs May 12 – 22. One lucky school will be announced as this year’s winner on May 6.

You can learn about NEC’s Tech Makeover competition on their website where you can view last year’s winning submission, read about the competition, see key dates and info, prizes, and more.
