Every graduating class has a handful of cultural milestones that will forever be etched into their high school memories (ours included the Monica Lewinsky scandal and Sisqo's "Thong Song"). For the Class of '09, those milestones include the rise of Twitter, the debate over same-sex marriage and the hardcore buzz surrounding "Twilight."
As a part of MTV News' Class of '09 Week, we'll be celebrating high school graduation season with stories and memories of graduation from your favorite celebrities, but we're also looking for input from you! This is your chance to represent for your peers in the class of '09. We're looking for the best video of you explaining what you think the defining factors of your generation are. What are your goals, dreams and aspirations? What issues and roadblocks do you plan on overcoming? We'll pick out the best answer and fly the winner to New York for lunch with Sway and a taping of the brand new MTV series "It's On with Alexa Chung." The winning video will also appear on MTVNews.com and may even air on MTV!
Want to enter? Just go to your.mtv.com to create a user account and upload your video (which should be no longer than three minutes). We're looking for the clearest, most original answer to the question, "What are the defining factors of your generation, and how are these factors reflected in the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the class of '09?"
