THE RNC: How Are Serving A Cause Greater Than Yourself? You have 100 Days To Answer on YouTube!

Today marks 100 days until the 2008 Republican National Convention takes over the Minneapolis’ Xcel Energy Center. In response to Sen. John McCain call “to serve a cause greater than one’s own self-interest”, the RNC has announced a national YouTube video contest with the winners attending the convention held Sept.1-4.

The organization encourages Republicans, Democrats, Independents and the like to join in answering Sen. McCain’s call. In addition to the producer and person profiled being invited, RNC organizers promise that the winning video will be given a prominent platform during the convention.

Video shorts can be submitted from NOW until June 26, 2008, via the RNC’s YouTube channel. All shorts will be voted on by You Tube users through the convention’s YouTube page. Five finalists will then be announced on June 27. Final voting runs through July 3, with the winner announced on July 4.

The YouTube national contest builds on the convention’s Minneapolis based American Neighbor Volunteer Program whose mission is “I can help my neighbor. I can make a difference in my community.”
