The Student Transportation Construction Industry Video Contest is aimed at helping students gain a better understanding of the importance of transportation infrastructure investment to the U.S. economy and quality of life, and to learn more about the industry and potential career opportunities. ARTBA’s Research & Education Division (RED) sponsors the contest and has two submission categories: general transportation impacts, trends and/or funding; and transportation safety. The contest is divided into two age groups: elementary, middle or high school students; and post-secondary, college and graduate students. Winners are selected in each age group, for a total of four first-place videos.

Create a video meeting these requirements:

  • Video must examine an aspect of these categories:
    • General transportation impacts, trends and funding.
    • Transportation safety.
  • Videos submitted should be 2-4 minutes long.
  • Videos must have a resolution suitable for large screen projection. Videos not achieving suitable resolution will be disqualified.
  • No copyrighted material may be used. Contact your university/college media center for help obtaining non-copyrighted music and sound effects.
  • The videos cannot contain content that violates the submission standards of YouTube.
  • All videos must be submitted in an MP4 format.
  • Written credits for key technical and talent positions should be provided to ARTBA (i.e., director, cinematographer, editor, writer, actors) including any music and/or footage sources. On-screen credits for technical and talent positions are not required. If on-screen credits are included, they should be listed on one screen at the end, trailer-style, and not rolling for minutes like they would at the end of a feature. The time for showing credits is not counted towards the 4 minute maximum. All videos MUST include both a title for the video and recognition of ARTBA.

  • Judges: The judges will be the sole arbiters deciding which video maker(s) are selected as award winners. No one will be allowed to be a judge if he/she has a conflict of interest with respect to any of the contest entrants, as determined by ARTBA in its sole discretion. A maximum of four (4) videos will be selected and the video makers will be notified of the awards.
  • Criteria: Entries will be judged on creativity, technical merit, adherence to contest requirements, and on how well they manage to convey the themes of the topic. These are clearly subjective categories and will be treated as such. The final awards will be selected based solely on the judges’ consensus.
