American Fork ( November 17, 2009 — is challenging its users to submit their funniest Christmas video for a chance to win a PlayStation 3, a Nintendo DS Lite or an Gift Card. The contest has been announced after the success in College Life’s previous contests, featuring scary stories and student scavenging techniques.

College Life is looking for parodies of Christmas classic movies and carols or even original funny Christmas videos. The highest rated video at the end of the contest will be awarded with a PlayStation 3 and second place will win a Nintendo DS Lite. For those who don’t have the means to produce a video, comments and tweets about the contest will enter them into a drawing for a chance to win a $50 Gift Card.

"The videos don’t need to be elaborate or costly, just funny. We don’t care if you do it with a web cam or a blackberry or a RED camera. We just want them to be funny," said Chris Kirkham, a producer for College Life.

This is the first video contest that the site has ever hosted.

"I think it’s a big step. It’s a lot easier to put up a comment or send a tweet out than to make a video– even a simple video. But I think a lot of people have talent in video and comedy and this is a great opportunity to show that off," Kirkham said.

Participants must be 18 or older, the original creator of all content, and must keep all entries family-friendly. To enter the contest, participants should upload a video to YouTube and place the link in the official contest post on College Life. Videos must be shorter than 5 minutes.
