Submissions being accepted for Task Force on Innovation video contest 
The Task Force on Innovation is sponsoring a YouTube video contest in which individuals -- particularly students -- are invited to submit three-minute videos that -- in funny and/or clever ways -- show how federally funded research has resulted in scientific innovations that have changed our lives. The top prize is $1,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. The winner will participate in a Capitol Hill event on Oct. 4 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Sputnik. The deadline for video submission is Sept. 10. The top five videos will be shown at the event. Information about the competition is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuGBNNCwkfs .
