The Reason Project, founded by Sam Harris and Annaka Harris, is holding a video contest with a pretty sweet first prize:
The prize for the Winning Video of 2010 will be $10,000.
The prize for Second Place will be $4,000.
The prize for Third Place will be $1,000.
And what do you have to do to get the cash?
Make a short video that in some way communicates the importance of critical thinking. Post it on YouTube (or some other video-sharing site) and submit the code for the embedded video on the contest submission form.
There are a few more details, but nothing unusual.
It would be great if someone reading this site could pull it off.
It’d be even better if the winner could donate some of the prize money to a good cause.
The deadline is Ferbuary 28th, 2010.
