Ethics video contest deadline now July 2

Emory Report | June 15, 2015

A contest to produce a video about ethical engagement at Emory has extended its deadline to Thursday, July 2.

The Compliance and Ethics Video Contest, held by the Administrative Compliance Office, invites participants from the Emory community to make a video about one of the values expressed in Emory’s Statement of Ethical Principles.

Examples of topics include:

• Conveying the significance of one of the principles to the Emory community in general or specifically to your department or unit

• Creating an educational video on one or more of the principles

• Applying some of the principles to a specific ethical issue that might arise while working at Emory

• Highlighting a colleague’s actions that demonstrate ethical engagement

The only requirements for the video are that it be two minutes or less and contain no copyrighted material.

A maximum of four Emory employees may collaborate on a video. Everyone submitting an eligible video will receive a certificate of participation and a small gift.

To submit a video: upload it to YouTube and email the link to the video to Scotty Jenkins.  To upload a video, sign up for a free YouTube account.  Public access to the videos can be restricted by adjusting privacy settings.

Videos will be judged by Administrative Compliance staff and faculty, alumni and graduate students from the Emory Center for Ethics. Criteria include originality and creativity of content, clarity of the message and ethical reflection. 

The individual or team with the best video will each receive a $50 gift card and the winning video will be published, with permission, on the Compliance and Ethics website. 

The winner will be announced in Emory’s News You Can Use.
