    YouTube Video Contest

    Make a video about the contest, or telling a Halloween story in Robloxia. The top three people who upload videos to YouTube will also receive prizes. These are the videos that have the most views at midnight, Oct 2. Make sure that you tag your videos with the keywords “Roblox” and “Spooky" so that we can find them.

    Video Contest prizes:
    1st: 12 Months BC Membership, Contest Exclusive Hat, 2000 Robux
    2nd: 6 Months BC Membership, Contest Exclusive Hat, 1000 Robux
    3rd: 3 Months BC Membership, Contest Exclusive Hat, 500 Robux

    Winners

    The contests will run until midnight on Oct. 2 (Pacific Standard Time). At that point the Roblox Team will start judging and counting visits. Accounts that do not start with the letters “RSBC” will not be counted. Only spooky/Halloween style levels may be uploaded to RSBC accounts, otherwise you will be disqualified.

    What ifs…

    Q: What if I don’t celebrate Halloween?
    A: You can participate anyway if you want to make a spooky or scary place, or a movie. Ask your parents if it’s OK.

    Q: What if I already have a Builder’s Club account?
    A: You will receive the other prizes listed and your account will be extended by the number of months.

    Q: What if I already made a Spooky place?
    A: Save it to your drive using Roblox Studio, make the new account, and then publish your place to the new account.
