Winners will receive $50!  

Winners will be judged on the quality of the acting (memorizing is better than reading the monologue), audio quality (dialog is easy to understand and there is not noise in the background), video quality (actor is easy to see, framing is landscape and not portrait, camera is steady, good background) and creativity.
