    Will you accept a video if it’s listed as “private” instead of “unlisted” in the Youtube privacy settings?

    Will any of the videos (whether they win or not) become made public on Youtube or at http://www.girlscoutsrv.org? I’d like to have the correct information when I explain this to parents.

    Thanks!

      Hi Sue, We can accept private if that’s their preferred setting. The winners will be shared on our website and may be shared through Facebook. We download and upload the winning videos to our YouTube account so that it’s attached to our account and not a volunteer’s account.

    2 questions: can two troops work together? Can videos include people outside of the troop members, if so, what do they need to sign for a release. Is there a standard form available?

  3. Michelle says

    A few questions:
    * can we include people outside of the troop provided they sign a release
    * is a standard release form available
    * can 2 troops work together.

      Hi Michelle! I believe someone from our Product Program team already reached out to you but for others who are wondering- the Cookie Music Video Contest can include people outside of the troop, provided that they sign a release form, and more than one troop can work together on the video together. Just be sure to include that information in your entry. For those interested in obtaining our standard release form, email girlscouts@girlscoutsrv.org.
