					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. The Media League is where singers, actors, writers,
beatmakers, rappers, dancers, videographers, animators, comedians and
poets come together to compete for championships, recognition and prizes.

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

and teachers by posting content directly to their social media networks
