Contest Reviewing Accessible Educational Media

Benefits of Audio Description in Education (BADIE) is a contest for students who watch educational videos with description soundtracks and then provide a review of their experience. BADIE is presented by The American Council of the Blind’s Audio Description Project and the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP). To enter, teachers simply choose a described video from DCMP’s website; have their students watch the described video and write a review; and then register for the contest and submit the review. The contest has four contestant entry categories: Sophomore (ages 7 to 10), Junior (ages 11 to 15), Senior (ages 16 to 21), and Alternate Assessment. The Alternate Assessment category refers to students whose participation in their general statewide assessment program is not appropriate, even with accommodations. Winners in each category will be chosen by January 2017. The grand-prize winner will receive an iPad Mini. Each first-place student winner will receive a $100 iTunes gift card; each second-place winner, a $50 iTunes gift card; each third-place winner, a $25 iTunes gift card; and each supporting teacher who has a winning student will be awarded a $100 Amazon gift card. Prizes are provided by The American Council of the Blind.

Deadline November 30, 2016, for entries
