UCT gives back…AGAIN by sponsoring a video contest to award $15,000!

Helping people with intellectual disabilities has been UCT’s number one community service project for over 50 years. Following up on the success of last year’s “UCT Gives Back” video contest, we’re giving back AGAIN by sponsoring a video contest for schools with programs for people with intellectual disabilities or universities with programs to train special education teachers. But this year we have TWO prizes to give away! The first-place winner will receive $10,000 and the second-place winner will receive $5,000!  


Do you know of or work with schools for people with intellectual disabilities or universities with programs to train special education teachers? Do you think they’d appreciate some financial help to keep their programs relevant and effective? Then let them – and teachers, parents and concerned individuals – know about this opportunity and encourage them to give it a shot. Here’s what they need to do:

  • Create a short video up to 2 minutes long
  • The video doesn’t need to be professionally filmed – use a video camera or Smartphone and keep it simple!
  • Explain how the $10,000 would help your program
  • Post the video on YouTube and complete the contest form at UCT’s Facebook page: www.Facebook.com/UCTinAction
  • Enter by December 31st for your chance to win $10,000

So what are you waiting for? Enter to win $10,000 for YOUR SCHOOL!

All entries must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2013. Video finalists will be posted on UCT’s Facebook page February 3-March 14 for fans to vote on the winner, and you can vote once per day. The winning schools will be announced and awarded the $10,000 first-place and $5,000 second-place cash prizes in late March 2014.
