One winning commercial will be selected from among the submissions. Along with bringing greater attention to this important campaign, the winning commercial will be aired on a major network or cable TV channel during the period of December 15th to December 31st.

One Laptop Per Child
Get inspired by the concept of connecting children around the world.
Need a prompt? How about the G1G1 tagline:
Give a laptop, Get a laptop, Change the world
You can be as creative as you want! But remember, the commercial should be kid friendly. In fact, kids are encouraged to participate, along with the guidance and support of a parent or legal guardian.
Contest begins November 17, 2008 and closes December 15, 2008. Only US residents are eligible for prize consideration.
