The New York Times's 15-Second Vocabulary Video Contest

I've come across this very creative educational project run by the NYT today. The idea is for students to make 15-second videos which present/explain/define meanings of words listed in the NYT's Word of the Day archive. Students submit their videos and once a year winners are announced. Unfortunately IFRom students cannot take part in the official contest because of the age limit (16-19), but why not make your own videos just for fun? Instead of the NYT word bank you could use some words which have come up in our course and have caught your attention for some reason. Give it a try! :)
And here are this year's winners. Some of them are really impressive!
