Phils Reviews 2017 Scholarship

Scholarship Eligibility

1. Create a Bike Video

If you don’t own a bicycle, feel free to borrow a friends bike. The bike does not need to be anything fancy, a cheap bike will do. Now create a video and tell the audience about that bike. Showcase your best skills and educate your target audience about something that they might not have known. Videos should be creative and entertaining.

In the video tell the audience about:

The style of bike (road bike, mountain bike, bmx, etc.)
The brand and model.
What you like about the bike or biking in general. Do you ride regularly?
Take us on a ride along and add any other commentary you wish.

Please keep your video between 2 to 10 minutes in length. Your video must be original content, created by you.

High-quality video, including professional lighting, sound, and video transitions or use of a tripod are not required to be a winning video. Amature video is fine. Have fun with it and make it a fun video to watch.

2. Posting your Video

Title your video as you see appropriate.

Copy and then paste the following in the video description:
