If you've got an out-of-control kid, you call Nanny 911. But who do you call if you've got a genius kid? FOX's new hit show, Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?, is seeking brainy kids to outwit the grownups.
Fox is searching for their new class of 5th Graders! Does your kid have what it takes to be a cast member? If you are the parent of a smart, funny, and outgoing 4th grader (who will be in 5th grade this fall), then Fox wants to hear from you! Please follow these instructions for your child to be considered as a student for the next season of Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?
1. With the help of your soon-to-be 5th grader, fill out the Student Application, answering all questions to the best of your combined ability. (Use extra paper if necessary.)
2. Sign and date all attached Release Forms.
3. Include a Photo of your 4th grader. The photo should be a close-up, and should picture only the student applying (no other family members). Snapshots are just fine.
4. Include a short Video, in which your 4th grader should tell FOX why he/she would be a great student in our class!
- Acceptable Formats: DVD or VHS (DV or Mini DV tapes will NOT be accepted).
- Length: No longer than three minutes (3:00).
- The video MUST feature your 4th grader only. Videos that include any other people will not be accepted.
- The video MUST NOT contain any music or singing.
- The video MUST NOT contain any artwork, photos, identifiable marks or logos.
- The video MUST be taken by the parent/guardian who signs the attached release forms.
- Tell FOX about or demonstrate some of his/her special skills, talents, and/or personality traits.
