Sparky Award Submissions

Early December is upon us, and the videos for the Sparky Award we talked about earlier this semester have been submitted. One intrepid section of English 202C produced a slew of videos for the contest. Here’s what is at stake for the winners of the contest:

Top winners of the international competition receive a $1000 check, while the runner up and “People’s Choice” winners receive $500. The local Penn State contest winners have the following lined up for them according to the contest website:

  • A special showing at a catered event at University Park in Spring 2010
  • Special prizes such as gift certificates to the Computer Store
  • Being featured on WPSU’s On-Demand channel which can be viewed via Comcast Cable’s On-Demand service across a 5-state region
  • A chance to be featured at the Penn State Student Film Festival

.

A submission to the contest by a English 202C group is below:

Question of the Day: Sweet Mobile Apps

AT&T is sponsoring a pretty cool competition in which entrants can win $10,000 cash in scholarship money for creating a mobile device application. Teams of up to four people can enter a custom-built application for the purpose of e-learning.  The rules state that the “innovating e-learning mobile app” should be functional across multiple platforms. Submissions are due by September 15, 2010 and so far there are only ten teams signed up. So my question for you is:

If you could develop a mobile device application, what would it do?
