The winning video will be announced at the summit on November 27, 2012 and receive $500 towards the school's bullying prevention efforts. In addition, the Governor and Lt. Governor will visit the winning school for an all-school assembly.

The winner will be determined based on the number of video views each video gets. Voting started on Monday, November 12th and will wrap up on Wednesday, November 21st.

While the deadline for submitting videos has passed, room is still available to attend the summit, which will be held on Nov. 27, at Hy-Vee Hall in Des Moines. Registration can be found on the summit's web site at https://preventbullying.iowa.gov/.

The governor's office encourages all Iowans to spread the word regarding the summit and video voting to their fellow students, teachers, family and friends. The winner and finalists for the video contest will be notified on Nov. 26.
