The winner of the “People’s Choice Award” will receive $5,000. The judges for the E4U2 Video Contest will select from all submissions a subset of videos to compete for the People’s Choice Award. The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be determined by the number of YouTube “likes” a video receives between January 5, 2015 12:01 AM EST and the deadline for the People’s Choice Contest, August 3, 2015 at 12:00 PM EDT. It is anticipated that the subset of videos selected by the judges to compete for the People’s Choice Award will be announced on the E4U website by June 1, 2015. These People’s Choice Award finalists will be informed of their status via email by June 1, 2015. The selection of the People’s Choice finalists will be at the sole discretion of the judges.
Except as otherwise provided above, whether any Submission is selected as a winner, and the final amount of any Category Award, will be at the sole discretion of the judges.
Winning Submissions will be featured on the NAE web site and the NAE contest website and will be shown at the 2015 National Academy of Engineering Annual Meeting in October 2015.
Prize funds will be distributed to an individual winner (or the winner’s parent or guardian, if the winner is under 18 years old), to the designated representative of the winning team (or that representative’s parent or guardian if the representative is under 18 years old) or to an organization designated by the team representative. Any federal, state, and local taxes, and all similar fees and assessments, are the sole responsibility of the prize recipient.
