Registration Opens for The World’s First Varsity Creativity League The Media League is a competitive creativity league in which high school Media Teams compete to produce and share original media in organized online competition.

Toronto, ON, November 14, 2012 -- The Media League, the world’s first varsity creativity league, opened to high schools for registration, bringing social networks and digital creativity into the school community in a positive and fun way. For an athlete in high school, making their varsity team in their particular sport is what they strive for and once achieved they are easily recognized by their peers, but creative students in high schools often don’t get recognized for their achievements. Well, that will change with the groundbreaking, interactive Media League. This nationwide competition is a chance for the most talented young artists to represent their school, and be pushed to the limits in competition against each other. Whether they are a beatmaker, musician, singer, rapper, DJ, video maker, actor, writer, poet, visual artist, digital artist, comedian, dancer, The Media League will be the destination for high-quality creative content made by teens for teens, celebrating creativity and showcasing excellence in high schools everywhere. “The Media League is groundbreaking because it brings digital culture and networked creativity into an educational context in a way that students will relate to yet that still reflects institutional goals like excellence, achievement and collaboration,” says John Sobol, Media League Commissioner and Co- Founder. As with all varsity sports, The Media League is a great opportunity for kids to excel, gain respect and even launch a professional career. This unique extra-curricular media league will run just like a sports league with players, coaches, fans, tryouts, games, scores, playoffs and a national championship, but all for artists. “By entering the league we anticipate students gaining the same stuff athletes’ gain, fun, training, experience, status, maybe even fame or fortune. These players are the most creative kids their age and they are very talented. For example, I could certainly imagine some hit songs emerging from all that high- quality creative output,” says Sobol. Registration is now open on www.themedialeague.com through November and participation is 100% free. There are several ways that high school students, teachers, alumni and parents are able to participate during the season of The Media League, which will begin on January 21, 2013… BE A PLAYER – To represent their school as one of it’s most talented and creative students then this is the place for them to compete for prizes and glory BE A COACH – This is for the teachers to help the most creative students in school to achieve greatness on the big stage BE A FAN – The high school Media Team is going to need some help from the sidelines and this is their chance to watch and share videos, songs, artwork, etc. to move them forward as the compete for a national championship BE A BOOSTER – Media Teams need the support from family, friends, alumni and teachers by posting content directly to their social media networks BE A SPONSOR – Supports thousands of creative students as they produce and share videos, music and more For more information and to register for The Media League go to www.themedialeague.com.
