Kids contest from NCH Software – What will computers do when I’m 25?

With school budgets being slashed it is very rewarding knowing we will be helping hundreds of kids stay computer literate,” said VP Sales and Marketing Greg Ahern. The theme of the contest is for kids K-12 to put together a video about what they think computers will do when they are 25 years old. “Kids have the ability to not be hindered by reality. It will be exciting to see what kids imagine the future will be like,” Ahern continued. “Who ever thought we would be talking face-to-face on devices like we saw on “The Jetsons,” or interacting with computers like we saw on “Star Trek,” or “2001: Space Odyssey?” Kids can imagine these things vividly, and maybe one day turn them into reality.”

All entries must be submitted by March 30th, 2012 and the videos will be uploaded on YouTube. Judging will be based predominately on creativity, and the winner will be announced by April 27, 2012. To learn more, visit http://www.nchsoftware.com/contest.
