Could you use an extra $5,000 for home repairs? Or maybe to finally take that well-deserved vacation? Well, you have the chance to easily win $5,000! VoiceForTexas and the Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee (TREPAC) present the My Texas Home Video Contest, which offers a $5,000 grand prize! All you have to do is create a 90-second video that shows why YOU love Texas, and why you call it your home. 90 seconds for $5,000? Not a bad deal!
How to Enter
Even if you’re not a video-wiz (many of us aren’t), creating a high-quality video is as easy as ever on most smartphones and tablets. A simple Google search gives you various ways to create a beautiful video from scratch. Once you film the video, host it on YouTube (or any other video hosting site) and submit it online for your chance to win!
What to Film
My Texas Home gives the best explanation of what it’s looking for:
“Tell your story about why you love your home in Texas. Tell us why your home is so special to you. Tell us about its history, or what makes it unique. Tell us about your community: the people, the families, and the friends…tell us about why you love your home and why you’re proud to call Texas home.”
This is a great chance to show people why you love where you live, and have some fun with the family while doing so! Oh yeah, and you also have the chance for that $5,000 grand prize. Note: There are certain eligibility rules to follow, so make sure you read those before you begin your filming.
Good luck filming! But hurry! The deadline to submit your video is July 31.
