The deadline will be June 1st Each year.
The scholarship will be a video submission, we’re looking for short, less than 2 minute long videos that focus on entertaining us, while being creative and innovative with your ideas!
The field of dentistry already gets a bum rap as far as fun-ness! We want to up the FUN quotient by evaluating the video submissions for the scholarship on these qualities.
The topic of the video submissions for 2016 will be: Tell (or enact for us) what super power you would love to have and how you would use it to help create better dental health in all people!
All videos will be rated on a scale of 1-10 for:

- 2. Innovative Idea / Presentation – Value 30% weighted
- 3. Idea Has Value to Dental Health – Value 30% weighted
- 4. Video Production Quality – Value 10% weighted
We don’t want anyone to be able to win just because they have the most fancy production equipment, so we weighted the values in favor of entertainment and innovation. To us, entertainment just means FUN, so if you’re having FUN while you’re making the video, it’s going to show through and we’re going to notice it! Please don’t do anything that’s going to get you hurt and in need of a 24 hour dentist!
