It’s Back-to-School month and we are celebrating by announcing our first ever video contest! We want to see your favorite school-related cell phone video clips of your child or children. All ages are welcome!

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Download the Cinebody App*
  2. Create an account and use code “bk2sl” to access the Back to School Video Contest project
  3. Upload your video**

Submissions are due at 5 p.m. CST on Monday, August. 29.

The winners of the contest will be selected by you! Video submissions will be posted on our Facebook page once the submission deadline closes you, your friends and your family can vote for your favorite videos with a comment. Each video will be numbered and to vote you will simply comment the number of the video that you would like to vote for. Keep in mind: Likes and shares will not be counted, so make sure to direct your voters to the original video to tally their comment.

Voting will close at 5 p.m. CST on Monday, September. 5. Winners will be announced the next day. Photos will also be featured on our blog, our Instagram page and in our American Adoptions newsletter.

We can’t wait to see all of your students. Good luck!
