Does my name have to be made public if I win?

We will showcase your winning entry but do not have to include your actual name. However, to enter the contest you must provide your real name and accurate contact information.
I am making a video with two friends. What happens if we win the prize?
One of your trio will need to be listed as the primary entrant in your entry form. That person’s identity will be verified in our review process. If your team wins an award, that person will receive the cash prize by check. Within your team, you (and not the contest organizers) will be responsible for dividing up the prize.
I have an unusual idea for an entry. Is it okay to submit it?
Each contest has specific guidelines, like the length of an entry. Beyond those specific guides, you are encouraged to be creative. If you can come up with an unusual way to address the main question, please submit it. Aside from sticking to the essential rules, we welcome “outside-the-box” entries.
Anti-Semitism seems like overwhelming problem – how can I can make a difference?
The problem is significant, but every solution begins with small steps. You have the ability to help make progress. Think about ways in your own life and community where you can contribute. Think about ways people like you can do the right thing. Take inspiration from other civil rights movements that tackled big problems in small pieces and ultimately succeeded.
