Create your own 2013 Zeitgeist using Meograph

Each year, Google releases their “Zeitgeist“, a summary of the “what captured the world’s attention in the past year”.  This year, Google is working with PBS to offer you the opportunity to create your own Zeitgeist for 2013 using the Meograph storytelling tool.

Here is a sample video using stories from 2012:

The contest winner will receive a Nexus 7 tablet from Google, and will be featured on YouTube’s education channel and Google’s Google+ page.  Entries must be submitted by midnight on December 14.

For more, check out the press release from PBS Newshour, or get started on the PBS #MyZeitgeist page.  If you create a compelling entry, please share it with us by using the comment section below.
