  2. I don’t get the point of talking about “pay it forward” as it is a contest… Why don’t you just send those ukes to three people who need them or have already done something good with instructions on how to pay forward ?

    You’re not paying forward, you’re paying back people for an effort through a contest, and getting a benefit out of it. That’s not how it’s supposed to work.

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think this contest is a bad idea, it IS a good idea, BUT there’s no way it is a “paying forward” action, it’s simply a contest.

    I’m sorry that I’m not fitting the exact definition of the ‘pay it forward’ theme. I believe the idea is that you do something nice for someone and in turn they do something nice for another person who does something nice for yet another person… Right? Well, all the people that have posted ukulele videos on YouTube did something nice for me as they have taught me various songs. So, I bought 3 ukuleles and some accessories and made a contest that will pay back 3 people for making even more videos that will help/inspire/entertain even more people… I look at it as each person that submits an entry could have a positive effect on multiple people and in return they might win a prize and I also will generate some extra traffic to my site. Everyone benefits :)

  4. Hey Julie! This is a great contest.

    I don’t see what the problem with calling it ‘play it forward’. The contest is encouraging people teach others what they know on the ukulele. Those people in turn can teach other people. Everyone wins! :)

  5. It is definitely a great concept for a competition. I’m not sure I would have got around to making a video were it not for the competition, however now that I have done so I am really keen to do some more videos – it’s fun to teach!

    Thanks Julie!
