College students across the country and Canada have a chance to earn some cash by impressing an office furniture maker with their campuses.

Zeeland-based Herman Miller is offering up to $5,000 in its fifth annual Student Video Contest.

This year’s topic is “Why Does Your Campus Matter?”

The contest will allow a student to “make a case for space — in a world where technology and online courses allow you to learn anything, anywhere, anytime.”

The winner will receive $2,500 and second and third place will win $1,500 and $1,000.

The videos — which are due by March 21 — must be under three minutes and follow a set of rules, such as not including any brand logos, including a school’s name and mascot.


Judges will select the top three videos based on three criteria: creativity, originality and appropriateness to theme.

Once the top three are selected, the order will be determined by a public vote, via an online voting system.

Previous years

Tim Shoulder at the University of Cincinnati won first place in 2013’s “What Makes a Learning Space Great?”

Falling in line with Herman Miller’s sustainable views, the 2012 topic, “What Makes Your Campus Green?” was won by Rachel Andrews of Pensacola State College.
