LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Wildlife Conservation Fund is hosting a commercial contest and invites anyone interested in designing his or her own commercial to enter.
Participants are encouraged to create an original, creative 30-second commercial highlighting the Nebraska Wildlife Conservation Fund, then upload it to a YouTube account.
The deadline for entering the contest is 5 p.m. on April 15. There are three categories that can be entered: grades 3-6, grades 7-12 and an open category.
The best commercial in each of the three categories will be selected by a public vote and will run on major television stations across the state during the 2013 tax season.
Commercials should be designed to raise awareness of the Wildlife Conservation Fund, help people better appreciate Nebraska’s wildlife and encourage people to donate to the fund through their tax rebates or through the fund’s website.
