Is Your Child a Budding Weather Forecaster?
The Weather Channel Interactive Offers Video Forecast Contest for Kids
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 5, 2008 -- Is it sunny and 78 degrees or 59 degrees with a chance of rain? Kids often have a varied perspective about what to expect from a weather forecast -- and sometimes see the weather altogether differently from adults. The Weather Channel Interactive (TWCI) now gives parents the chance to submit their child's video of their own weather forecast.
Kids can be as serious or as creative as desired. Videos may be featured at www.weather.com/kidcast and might even be shown on air on The Weather Channel network. The chance for fame comes in three categories: "most creative," "most entertaining," and "most likely to be a meteorologist." Winners in each category will receive a $100 gift prize package from The Weather Channel. The best overall video will win a grand prize trip for four to Atlanta to tour our new HD studio, including three nights with hotel, flight and car rental.
most likely to be a meteorologist. Contestants must submit a video of a single child or group of children under the age of 18 presenting a local, regional or national weather forecast. With a submission deadline of July 31, submit videos and review more guidelines at www.weather.com/kidcast. Remember to check back to see if your video made it to weather.com, or to check out the competition.
