Couple quick Video Tips from the judges and MORE FAQ:
1. It’s most ideal to have YOU speaking in your video. There is going to be a lot of video blogging in the next SOAR! year, and the panel of judges want to see how you hold yourself on video. You don’t have to be perfect by any means, but to see you give it your best shot is gold.
2. If you’d like to redo your video, GO FOR IT! Just re-upload a new video and let us know that you’d like to switch it out. CLICK HERE to upload your video!
3. A panel of hand picked judges will pick the THREE winners for SOAR! They will base their decision on two things; Your Video Submission and Your COMPLETE SOAR! Application.
4. Winners will be announced on January 1st 2010!
