  • No inappropriate content (all school rules apply in the production of the video)
  • The video must be sent in by a sponsor
  • The video may be submitted in any format playable on a computer

This video is for the use of the OJCL Convention only.  It may not and will not be published in any format (YouTube, OJCL website, etc.), but may be shown only during a GA at convention.  Submission of a video for this contest is giving the OJCL your permission to show the video at convention.  Please remember to only film people with their permission.
