The 2010 Creativity World Forum is coming to Oklahoma City in two weeks. In advance of the event, Creative Oklahoma is sponsoring a Creativity Contest for Students, who are challenged to:

… show us your creative ideas for improving communities, schools and businesses so that Oklahoma remains a creative frontier. We invite all forms of creativity including, but not limited to, essay, video, photography, drawing, or mixed media.

For the past week, my three children have been thinking about and planning their video entries in the contest. Tonight we filmed them at home, using my iPhone 3GS, and I think (quite subjectively, of course) the results are spectacular! Both Sarah and Alexander created their videos in one take, Rachel took two takes. I’m quite proud of their communication skills as well as their ideas for encouraging creativity in our schools! I’ll be dropping these video entries off at the Oklahoman tomorrow to meet the contest deadline. Then we’ll keep our fingers and toes crossed – BIG prizes are on the line, both for the kids and their teachers!

Rachel, 1st Grade (Age 7) – The Importance of Art Class at School and Creativity

Sarah, 5th grade (Age 10) – Laptops, Creativity, and Trusting Students

Alexander, 7th grade (Age 12) – Legos, Creativity, and Schools
