Your elementary school can win up to $2,500 by entering the WoodmenLife ‘America Is ...’ video contest


WoodmenLife is sponsoring the “America Is…” Video Contest, which aims to get elementary school students excited about their country and to show pride in their school and their community.

By sharing a 30-60 second video on the topic “What America means to me,” students and school representatives across the nation have the opportunity to win up to $2,500 for their school. The videos will be viewed on WoodmenLife’s Facebook page where the public can vote for their favorite. Prizes will be awarded to the top three videos with the most online votes. Visit for information on other prizes awarded.

With today’s shrinking school budgets, finding money for classroom technology, special projects or extracurricular activities can be a challenge. WoodmenLife is thrilled to offer this opportunity for schools to earn money for classroom activities, sports equipment, field trips or other items. All elementary school classroom teachers, band directors, coaches, principals and school-affiliated organizations are eligible to participate in the contest.

Beginning on Monday, April 2, school representatives can enter their video on the WoodmenLife Facebook video contest tab through 12 p.m. on Thursday, April 26. Facebook fans will then cast their vote for their favorite videos starting on Monday, April 30, through 12 p.m. on Friday, May 11. The contest winners will be announced on Monday, May 14, via Facebook and Twitter.
