LearningRx Presidents Day Contest
A fun contest is underway at LearningRx, and we hope you will jump at the chance to compete to win!
For Presidents Day 2018, LearningRx is sponsoring a video contest that is going to be a ton of fun. Here’s the challenge: Have someone help you create the best video of you reciting all 45 presidents. We want videos to demonstrate divided, selected and sustained attention, plus be visually interesting – funny, silly, impressive, interesting, cute, and compelling. And on top of all that, it also needs to be correct and relatively fast!
“This is one of the first things we have students master in our brain training programs,” says LearningRx Chief Research and Recruitment Officer Tanya Mitchell. “It quickly strengthens long-term memory, attention and other cognitive skills, and it also gives a big boost of self-confidence. Many of these kids have struggled in school for years, so when they can quickly learn all the presidents they finally feel smart and confident, often for the first time ever.”
Take a look at previous winners and runners up, as well as the compilation of videos to see the type of fun submission we’re searching for. Here is the compliation video from last year, showing all some of our amazing students and their attention and memory skills:
