Guess what! It’s election time! And no, don’t worry, we’re not talking about politics. We’re talking about how it’s time for you to vote on who you think should win the 2018 “Future U.S. Nurse Scholarship” from TravelNurseSource. Every year TravelNurseSource gives away a $2,000 scholarship to one lucky winner. This year we switched it up a little bit though, and we need your help. Instead of doing a traditional essay contest, we’re doing a selfie-video contest. That’s right – we asked contestants to submit a selfie video explaining why they want to be a nurse and how $2,000 would help them. The thing is, we narrowed it down to six people, but we need help voting for which finalist will ultimately win. Starting October 29, we’re going to share our favorite videos with you. All you have to do is visit our Facebook page, watch the videos, and like your favorite!
Things to Consider When Voting for the “Future U.S. Nurse Scholarship” Winner
If you plan on voting for the winner of the “Future U.S. Nurse Scholarship,” you should consider these three factors before you pick your favorite! This is the judging criteria, so to speak, that we’re following for the selfie videos. Check it out.
How long is the video and what’s the quality of the video?
The first thing you should consider before picking your favorite selfie video is the video length and quality. We asked contestants to submit a video that was 30 seconds to one minute in length. We also said that it should be a simple selfie video, asking only that the visual and audio quality was clear and easy for viewers to understand. Although the quality of video submitted by these six finalists ranges from good to great, all of them meet our standards to have made it this far.
How sincere is the person being and what’s their background?
The next and most important thing you should consider is the sincerity shown in the video. We want to give this scholarship to someone who truly needs it, so consider their story as you make your selection; why do they want to be a nurse and how badly do they need the money? They also were required to mention TravelNurseSource in the video, because they are, after all, talking to us!
How much effort did they put into making the video?
The last criteria we considered in order to narrow down the finalists was – how creative were they? Did they have fun making this video and how much effort did they put into it? So, not only did they say what they were required to tell us, and not only did they make a quality video, but was it memorable and does it stand out from the others? Of course, we want to give the video to the person who we feel put in the most effort!
After watching the finalist videos, you’ll see why we are struggling so much to make a decision! Please take your vote seriously, and we truly mean it when we say that YOUR VOICE MATTERS. Voting will remain open to you October 29 through November 9. Feel free to recruit your friends to help us as well!
Thank you for your help and happy voting!
