Your Elementary School can Win up to $2,500 by Entering the WoodmenLife “America Is…” Video Contest

March 7, 2019

WoodmenLife is once again sponsoring the “America Is…” Video Contest, which aims to get elementary school students excited about their country and to show pride in their school and their community.

Starting March 25, classrooms can share an original 30 – 60 second video on the topic “What America means to me” on the contest page located on WoodmenLife’s corporate Facebook page. Students and school representatives across the nation have the opportunity to win up to $2,500 for their school. People can watch the videos on WoodmenLife’s Facebook page where the public can vote for their favorite. Prizes will be awarded to the top three videos with the most online votes. Visit for more information and additional prizes.

With today’s shrinking school budgets, finding money for classroom technology, special projects or extracurricular activities can be a challenge. WoodmenLife wants to help by offering this opportunity for schools to earn money for classroom activities, sports equipment, field trips or other items. All elementary school classroom teachers, band directors, coaches, principals and school-affiliated organizations are eligible to participate in the contest.

Beginning Tues., March 25, school representatives can enter their video on America Is … Patriotic Video Contest tab. Entries will be accepted through 12 p.m. CDT Fri., Apr. 19. Facebook fans will then cast their vote for their favorite videos from Mon., Apr. 22, through 12 p.m. Fri., May 3. The contest winners will be announced on Tues., May 7 via WoodmenLife’s corporate Facebook and Twitter pages.
