Vodpod videos no longer available.


Calling all students! Have you ever wanted to appear on the No.1 music channel MTV? Well now’s your chance.

Edge, an independent education foundation, is calling on students to start an education revolution. The charity wants you to have your voice heard by uploading a video on what you feel needs to change in schools, along with subjects you would most like to study. The winning videos will then be screened on the hit music channel.

So, how does it work?
If you are 16 or over than simply film your views on education and upload it to a video site such as YouTube or MTV Flux, with the title beginning EdgesRevolution, followed by your name. Secondly all videos must be tagged with EdgesRevolution, otherwise you might not be entered.

What should you discuss in your video?
1. If you could’ve chosen a subject that would have helped you fulfil your talent – it can be anything, not just a ‘normal’ school subject – what would that subject have been and why? E.g.; Film/photography/criminology
2. If you could send a message to politicians asking them to change the education system in any way, what would it be?
3. Young people seeing this are facing some big, life-changing decisions, Edge’s mission is to encourage them to realise there are many paths to success in life. What does ‘many paths to success’ mean to you, personally?
4. Do you have a message for other young people about ‘many paths to success’?

Once you’ve uploaded your video, tell your mates about it and make sure they watch it, as the video with the most views wins. It’s that simple!! The winning videos will then be screened daily for everyone to see on MTV from Monday 7th September, so get filming!
