Macy’s $50,000 All-School Lip Dub Challenge

Does your school have what it takes to be the champions of Macy’s All-School
Lip Dub Challenge? This fall, Macy’s is inviting the students, faculty and
staff of elementary, middle, high schools and college to submit their one-take
lip dub video,performed to singer/songwriter Tim Myers’ version of The Beach
Boys classic song “Be True to Your School.” The winning entry will be awarded
$25,000, followed by $15,000 for second place, with the third place winner
taking home $10,000 for their school.

A lip dub is a music video where the participants lip-sync to a song while
performing a creative, choreographed routine filmed in a single, continuous
take. No audio is recorded during the take and the song is added in editing.

For the All-School Lip Dub Challenge, Macy’s is looking for America’s most
talented lip dubbin’ school community that can create a video to wow the
competition. In the spirit of being true to your school, the lip dub video
must be filmed on the school’s property and school attire is encouraged, so
students can break out their athletic uniforms, band costumes or other school
apparel. Entries will be evaluated based on school spirit and participation,
creativity and execution.

To enter, visit Macy’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/macys to download the
official song audio of “Be True to Your School,” create a video featuring your
school community lip-syncing in one continuous take, then add in the music
during the editing process. The final video submission should use the entire
song and be less than 10 minutes long. From September 4 through October 10,
2014, an adult school representative or faculty member can upload the final
video to youtube.com/macys and share a brief statement (maximum of 500
characters) on how the school would use the prize. The winner will be revealed
on Macy’s YouTube channel in late October.
