I'm in a video contest for $500! I just got ubuntu, had to ditch windows and now I cant find any good video creators like windows movie maker. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please hurry, videos are due Feb 1st!

You may want to try something like Pitivi (http://www.pitivi.org/). (available in the repos)
It offers all the basic features you probably would need + even more.
I don't think they have effects yet but effects can be added with Open Movie Editor (http://www.openmovieeditor.org/).
(OME also does cutting and such but I think Pitivi does a better job.)
Probably the best one out there, but less gnome integrated, kdenlive (http://www.kdenlive.org/) is also well suited for the job.

Search in the forum for 'best video editor' or so and you will find a lot of suggestions. You will find the editors above and cinelerra, blender vse, open movie editor, avidemux, kdenlive, kino, lives, (lumiera). If you need to learn it before feb 1 than cinelerra and blender are not suitable (higher level, longer learning curve).
Your question shows up fairly frequent. Finally you are the only that can decide for yourself what the best editor for you is.

Wow! Based on what I've seen from other posts, OpenShot is very promising. It seems like it is very up and coming with good support.
