Received this announcement today.

On Tuesday, September 8th, President Obama will announce his Back to School challenge – the “I Am What I Learn” video contest for students. The President will then deliver a historic national address to the students of America and ask them to create videos describing what they can do to improve their education, and the role education will play in fulfilling their dreams.  The deadline for students to submit videos to the contest is October 8th, 2009, and we want to help students with their videos!
