Creating a video is optional; however, it may help our team in the review process. There will be a place in the application to provide a youtube link of your video. Please don’t mark it as private or disallow embedding or we won’t be able to view it.

Videos should not exceed 90 seconds. Introduce yourselves, explain your project and why you are passionate about it, and anything else that may help us choose you. No imagery, music or fancy gimmicks. We just want to see you and hear your story!
