JSU to offer $250 prize in ‘JSU Cares’ video contest

Jackson State University is a national leader among colleges and universities in community outreach and engagement. Jackson State students, faculty and staff regularly feed the homeless, mentor and tutor youth, visit hospitals and senior citizens’ homes, participate in home-building projects and provide clothing for the less fortunate.

Today, JSU launches the JSU Cares video contest.


The university is offering $250 to the student who produces the best video commercial about JSU’s community outreach efforts. The video must be exactly one minute long and must be recorded with an Apple iPad, iPhone or other mobile device. The video should detail your community service efforts and how JSU has inspired you to serve others.

Upon completion, upload your video to YouTube and send the URL link in an email to publicrelations@jsums.edu. The email subject line should read: JSU Cares Video Contest. The winner will be selected based on creativity, originality and ability to express the JSU Cares message of working in the community, giving to the community and caring for the community. All submissions must be received by 3 p.m., Feb. 6, 2013. The winner will be announced at 3 p.m., Feb. 8, 2013, on JSU’s website and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. For more information, send an email to publicrelations@jsums.edu.
