• Create a video of yourself singing the first four (4) lines of the National Anthem (“Star-Spangled Banner”). Make sure you state your FIRST name and where you are from before you start singing.

    O! say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
    O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?

• Your video should be about 1-minute (or less) in length.
• Upload the video to YouTube and set it to “public” (Instructions are included in the Entry Form)
