On behalf of the Fields Undergraduate Network (F.U.N.) we invite undergraduates to participate in the F.U.N. Kids Choose Math Video Contest.

**Background:**

As an undergraduate student, do you remember when you were first inspired by the fascinating field of mathematics? Would you like an opportunity to be that first inspiration for another? The video contest is your chance to expand someone else’s mathematical universe.

This contest is an initiative developed to help inspire interest in learning mathematics and encourage mathematical ways of thinking by creating short and entertaining videos.

This initiative is made possible by faculty advisers to F.U.N. and sponsorship from the Fields Institute, the Canadian Mathematics Society, and Virtual Researchers on Call (http://vroc.ca).

**Details:**

We want you to produce a five-minute video about mathematics for a target audience of Canadian kids in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8. The deadline for your video submissions is May 16, 2012 @ 04:00 GMT.

Your videos will then be made available for streaming on the “Kids Choose Math Video Contest” website. The kids will then rate these videos through this website.

The video with the highest rating will be declared the winner and your club/society/organization will be awarded a prize of at least $1000 to host a F.U.N. event at your location.

**More Information:**
