Los Angeles, CA (June 8, 2012)‐ The Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) announces the inaugural S.E.T. Awards Video Contest. Open to all U.S. residents, the S.E.T. Awards Video Contest gives those 18 years and older the unique opportunity to create a television show about how they use science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in their daily lives. Submissions must be entertaining, compelling and accurate if entrants hope to win the grand prize: a trip for two to the 2nd Annual S.E.T. Awards in Los Angeles and a guidance meeting with a writer/producer/executive!
"Video allows you to dream, it allows you to inspire and imagine vast possibilities, it can create a believability factor in the value of and uniqueness of education and careers in science, engineering and technology," said EIC President and CEO, Brian Dyak.
The S.E.T. Awards Video Contest is one more element within EIC's ever-growing Ready on the S.E.T and.. Action! initiative designed to increase American interest in, and pursuit of, careers in science, engineering and technology.
"Within the entertainment industry, the Entertainment Industries Council promotes, encourages, and rewards accurate depictions of critical health and social issues, including science, engineering, and technology, as well as the proliferation of objectively factual information pertaining to these issues. We look forward to seeing how both amateur and professional filmmakers choose to portray these issues," said Larry Deutchman, EIC Executive Vice President of Marketing & Industry Relations.
