See the message below for a wonderful opportunity from National 4-H Council! Deadline to submit is May 20! I was out of the office when this email arrived, apologies on the short turnaround!
As you may know, National Youth Science Day is one of our biggest events of the year. The 2015 experiment is Motion Commotion, designed by Oregon 4-H. The experiment explores motion through the relationship of speed and stopping distance, physics, reaction time and safety. Youth all over the country will participate in this experiment in October 2015. National 4-H Council is looking for 10-15 high school and middle school-aged 4-H youth to serve as narrators and experiment participants in our nationally-produced NYSD instructional and promotional videos. These videos will be shared and promoted nationwide and are a fantastic opportunity for 4-H'ers interested in acting or the performing arts (though all are welcome to submit applications regardless of experience or talent).
Please pass along this information to any charismatic 4-H youth that want to shine onscreen! The shoot will be held in the local Virginia/DC/Maryland area, with more detailed information on date and location to follow.
All youth interested in this opportunity are required to email Sarah Hunt (shunt@4-H.org) with the following information :
1. Name, Age, Gender, Location
2. Preferred contact information
3. A short video portraying the youth saying the following lines (cue cards encouraged).
The 2015 National Science Experiment, Motion Commotion, explores the science of motion through the relationship of speed and stopping distance.The activity extends to real-world investigations on reaction time and safety, making connections to the dangers of distracted driving.
This experiment is designed to take about an hour and is appropriate for youth in grades 4 and above.
Don't forget to act natural and energized while delivering your lines!
All applications must be submitted by May 20th, 2015. Applicants will be informed of their selection by May 22nd.
Thank you again for taking the time to spread this information among your 4-H communities. We want the real faces of 4-H to represent National Youth Science Day, and we cannot do that without your support.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions at all!
Cheers, Sarah Hunt shunt@4-H.org
