Newsday is sponsoring a contest to feature kids from around the island in a commercial, singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” District 34 is asking for videos submissions of our little leaguers singing “Take me Out to the Ballgame” from start to finish.
Newsday’s chosen videos will then be edited together into one really nice island-wide medley to mark the beginning of the major league baseball season (hopefully in a few weeks).
Each video should just be ONE kid at a time, NOT teams. The only exception might be if there are multiple kids in the same household.
The kids should have FUN with it, maybe yell “play ball!” at the end. And we’re hoping the kids can be dressed in their little league gear, showing their local pride (and not Mets or Yankees stuff, as we’d likely run into copyright issues there). But regular clothes (with no brands showing) are fine too.
If you’re interested, please send your videos and the signed minor release form (here) to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than this Saturday, June 20. We will forward all submissions.
