Rush Techfest Wants Contest Entries | local news


RUSHVILLE – Have you heard of Rush TechFest?

This event is supported by a grant from the Purdue Center for Regional Development and the Duke Energy Foundation.

TechFest will feature fun and engaging activities, competitions, demonstrations and workshops aimed at raising awareness of digital technology for all ages.

TechFest is requiring entrants and submissions for two video and advertising contests.

As part of Rush TechFest 2022, the Rush County Broadband Task Force and Digital Inclusion Committee are hosting a video contest with two categories: advertising and video.

The commercial contest challenges entrants to create and submit a 15-60 second commercial video promoting Rush TechFest, which will be held on Saturday, April 30 from 10:00am – 1:00pm at the Boys & Girls Rush County Club on N. Sexton Street. Rushville.

Commercial submissions are due Friday, April 8, 2022.

Submissions to the five to seven minute video contest have two options. Participants can create a video in which they break down a topic or technology issue in an easy-to-understand way for the audience. The other option is to develop a “how to” video that explains a technology task or activity.

Submissions for the video contest are due Friday, April 22nd.

“These competitions are a great way to encourage and model exactly what TechFest is about – how technology is being integrated and improving our lives,” said Nichole Kirchoff, director of the Rushville Public Library. “I encourage anyone who makes videos for TikTok, YouTube, or even your family to check out our video contests.”

There are prizes in each category. First place is $250, second place is $150, and third place is $100.
