NASA Earth Day Video Contest 2012

 NASA Earth Day Video Contest 2012

For the second year in a row, NASA is challenging the public to create a compelling video vision of NASA's exploration of Earth -- The Home Frontier.

To enter, produce a short video that captures what you find inspiring and important about the unique view and understanding of Earth provided by NASA science. Upload your video to YouTube and tag it using the instructions found on the contest website. NASA will feature the best entry, chosen by a panel of NASA scientists and communicators, on the NASA website. The winner will receive behind-the-scenes access to the next rocket launch of a NASA Earth-observing satellite. While the winner will join a group of NASA fans receiving special access to the Landsat mission and the rocket launch itself, he or she is responsible for transportation to and from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The winner of the video contest will get a guaranteed spot on the NASA Social tour and viewing of the launch. These spots are typically chosen by a lottery system.

This contest officially opens for submissions on Earth Day, April 22. Submissions will be accepted until May 31, 2012.
