IF I HAD A TRILLION DOLLARS.... YOUTH VIDEO CONTEST

The deadline for submissions to the "If I Had a Trillion Dollars" youth video contest is rapidly approaching. Remind any young people (between the ages of 13 and 23) in your circle about this cinematographic opportunity!
IF I HAD A TRILLION DOLLARS Youth Video Contest

The money that is being spent on the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan just reached One Trillion Dollars (!!!) on May 30, 2010. This money could be spent in our communities on many things that now face cuts like after-school programs, arts and music programs and summer jobs.

YOU can help us spread the wrod. The American Friends Service Committee and the National Priorities Project are sponsoring a youth video contest to help young people (between the ages of 13 and 23) enter the cost of war discussion. Share your ideas about what you would do with One Trillion Dollars -- for yourself, your family and your community, by making a short (1 - 3 minute) video by NOVEMBER 30, 2010.

First Prize: $500 and a trip for two to Washington, D.C. to show your video to your home legislator.
Second and Third Prizes: Flip Video Cameras.

All the tools you need to participate are at this link:
