WIN $5,000—AND A JOB!

We asked you to create a 60-90 second video that answered one of the biggest questions of all—What does it mean to be human?

The criteria was simple: awesomeness.

Who are the winners?

We had so many great submissions, we sent videos from 26 semi-finalists to be rated by our blue ribbon panel of Big History students and teachers. After careful consideration, we have our winners! Congratulations to Abby, Nick, and Steven!
