Brief But Spectacular Video Challenge


Brief But Spectacular Student and Teacher Video Challenge!

**ALL SUBJECTS and GRADES WELCOME TO SUBMIT** Now you can join the fun! Submit your video on how you’ve been inspired or what you’ve learned during COVID-19 by May 10, 2020.

We have the best judges around — senior citizens — who will award prizes to the top three winners in both the student and teacher categories.

Submit for the first round by April 30, 2020, and the second round by May 10, 2020.


  1. Create a video in the style of Brief But Spectacular (watch a few and you’ll get the idea, and see the lesson plan a few lines above).
  2. Submit by May 10, 2020 on Twitter or Instagram tagging @NewsHourExtra and #BriefButSpectacularEDU (we also called for first round submissions by April 30, 2020).
  3. EXTRA will then share your videos with our judges–senior citizens! Prizes to the winners ($20, $35 and $50 prizes) in both the teacher and student categories. Keep in mind that the real prize is that you just made senior citizens across the country smile wide at your Brief moments.
  4. EXTRA will announce the winners over social media.
  5. Email Victoria at for additional information.
