This is the final week of the Brainypics contest. We’ll be picking the last 5 finalists who will compete for our $200 Grand Prize and win themselves iTunes songs.  Ooooohhhhh~

We won’t be setting a special theme this week. Just make your Brainypics funny and memorable.  Getting started is easy (of course): http://Brainyflix.com.

And here are 5 vocab words to help you on the SAT courtesy of last week’s winners.  Some were Thanksgiving-themed, others were just flat-out hilarious.  All can be enjoyed. :]

P.S. – We had some really great submissions which we had to pass on because there was no source listed. Ooooffffff. Please remember to show the source!

This Week’s Contest: Brainypics About Brainypics

Hey guys! Thanks for all of the submissions to last week’s “Your Photos” Brainypics contest. I know it was tougher than usual because you had to take or dig up photos you’d taken before and then turn it into a Brainypic flashcard, but the turnout will still great. We basically matched last week’s record best of 540 pics. :]

This week’s contest: Brainypics About Brainypics. We got this idea from some really funny users. Basically, you create Brainypics with sentences that talk about the Brainyflix.com website, refer to other Brainypics, mention you as the creator of the Brainypic, etc.

Not quite sure what we mean? Check out these examples:

This puppy is full of wrath because the people on Brainyflix won’t vote for his Brainypics.

wrath (n): vengeful anger, punishment

The almighty Gladiator Kitty shall assail all those who oppose his reentry into Brainyflix! Dare you incur his wrath?

assail (v): to attack

"Your belligerent ways shall come to end, Gladiator Kitty!" yells the evil monkey.

Belligerent (adj): Warlike; given to waging war

Good luck, guys, and get started —>>> Brainyflix
