Eli Manning and Samsung's Four Seasons of Hope Video Transcript
>> Ms. Del Conte: Hi. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET News. I'm here today with Eli Manning the quarterback of the New York Giants, and he came to talk about Samsung's Four Seasons of Hope Contest. So tell me about this program.
>> Mr. Manning: They're basically giving away a $1 million in technology products and grants so parents, teachers, students can go online and submit a 100 word essay of why their school needs these technology tools to help out their education.
>> Ms. Del Conte: How many of these essays will you be reading personally?
>> Mr. Manning: I don't know many essays I'll be reading. You know, I'm just trying to promote that the kids and parents or teacher or whoever write the essays and make sure they give good examples of why their school needs some new technology to help out their education.
>> Ms. Del Conte: So if there are kids that need help with proofreading, what's your e-mail address?
>> Mr. Manning: [laughter] Well, they could maybe submit some to the Giants, and I can look at them.
>> Ms. Del Conte: In your travels as a football star do you see a lot of impoverished education?
>> Mr. Manning: You know, I've visited some schools for not always looking at their education but just looking at different things and to talk to children about how important their schooling is. And, you know, even though at times you can struggle or if you're getting behind, don't be afraid to ask for help and I think that's the hardest thing sometimes for kids.
>> Ms. Del Conte: How do you think technology can help children and how has it affected you?
>> Mr. Manning: Just getting the right products, the right software into the schooling system. You know, they're all teaching tools. Teaching technology, that's what it is, and I think it just sets them up for the 21st century where technology, the internet it's so powerful there's so many different resources and learning techniques that you can learn by using it.
>> Ms. Del Conte: So if I'm paying attention to my commercials on Sunday, your brother Payton represents Sony and now you're here with Samsung is there any sibling rivalry?
>> Mr. Manning: He plays for a Colts. He can do whatever he wants. And, you know, I'm here in New York and here with Samsung so we support each other but we have different tastes I guess.
>> Ms. Del Conte: Apparently.
>> Mr. Manning: [laughter]
>> Ms. Del Conte: Well, thank you so much for sitting down with me today. In New York I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET News. ^M00:02:17
