"Do the Craze": Win $1,000 from Cambio For Your Best Viral Video

Cambio – AOL's online entertainment platform for teens and young adults - has teamed up with one of the most influential internet personalities on the web, iJustine. The partnership centers around a program entitled "Do The Craze" in which iJustine will invite users to create a video where they imitate a hot viral trend -- for a chance at internet fame and a small fortune. In addition to iJustine, Cambio has partnered with Trendera, a leading trend forecasting and consulting company, to forecast and identify the hottest emerging trends on the web.

Exclusively broadcast through Cambio and AOL, "Do the Craze" will feature iJustine performing a new hot viral trend every four weeks that will be identified by Trendera. Viewers will then be asked to mimic the featured trend and submit videos of their performance. The most entertaining videos will earn the opportunity to be featured across Cambio and AOL with the top submission winning $1,000.

AOL's Cambio Inspires the Next Generation of Teen Entrepreneurs

As teen unemployment rates continue to rise,* we are proud to announce a new partnership with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) to help teens reach their entrepreneurial dreams. NFTE, an international non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring young people from low-income communities to stay in school and recognize business opportunities has launched MakeYourJob.org , an interactive new web resource that gives teens the basic tools and knowledge needed to help turn their interests and hobbies into real businesses. We have partnered with MakeYourJob.org for the launch of a new content hub focused on helping teens create businesses and learn to make smart financial choices throughout their lives that will live on Cambio.com.

Cambio and the NFTE will collaborate to allow teens access to MakeYourJob.org, along with inspiring videos of fellow teen entrepreneurs on Cambio.com. We will also give a select number of teen entrepreneurs competing in NFTE's National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge the opportunity to present their business ideas on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt-NY, our three day conference and startup-competition, in September 2012.
