2010 Waitakere Primary Video
Every year we make a short video of the Derby to upload to You Tube and our website. A Rotary Only video is... boring. We therefore seek input from the children involved to really make it interesting. And we offer PRIZES to all entrants!
LENGTH: 3 minutes
FORMAT: Suitable for upload to You Tube
CONTENT: Can contain video, slideshows of photos, logos, art work, interviews, voiceovers, music...
LOCATIONS: School, Practice Days, Scruitineering and drivers safety briefing day
SPONSORS: Sponsors are important - without them we can't have a Derby.
DEADLINE: Finish it by the end of Term 1 and post it so we get it by Wednesday 11th April 2012.
PRIZES: These will be awarded at our Thank You Night in Term 2.
