We’re halfway through the summer and perhaps you’ve already heard the inevitable “I’m bored” complaint?

Just Be Friends Million Acts of Friendship

A fun family video contest sponsored by Just Be Friends promises to keep the kids busy and help families connect, all while offering more than $2,500 worth of prizes! The Million Acts of Friendship Video Contest, which runs until October 14, 2013 , challenges families across the country to create and submit a short video that captures what friendship means to them.

It’s not always easy keeping the kids entertained over the summer so The A Million Acts of Friendship Video Contest will encourage the whole family to talk about the value and meaning of friendship while giving the kids a creative outlet. The opportunity to win some incredible prizes is another bonus!

The grand prize winner will receive $1,000 cash, a $1,000 donation to their school, an Apple iPad Mini, a backpack full of goodies, a six-month subscription to Just Be FriendsTM, and the opportunity to have their video featured in a national marketing campaign for Just Be Friends.

The contest closes October 14, 2013 and is open to residents of all Canadian provinces except Quebec.

The 15 videos that receive the most “Likes” will go before a jury and be narrowed down to three finalists, from which members of the public will choose first, second and third place winners. For more information, or to submit your video, visit jbfKIDS.com.
