Enter the TeaCon Video Challenge
We’re proud to announce a powerful new way for you to help us get ready for the 2012 election, the TeaCon Video Challenge
This is your chance to make a 60-second video telling us why you’re part of the tea party movement, why we need to make a difference in 2012 and what you’ll do to help. Let us know what you’ve done to advocate for liberty, spread the tea party message, engage your friends and neighbors or hold our elected officials accountable. Tell us why you’re going to TeaCon 2011, Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. Please use the phrase “See You at TeaCon” in your video.
The best entries will be voted on by a panel of tea party volunteers. A winner will be chosen and they’ll attend a VIP Meet and Greet with Glenn Beck at TeaCon. We’ll share the best videos online and live at TeaCon. This is your opportunity to add your voice and creativity to the tea party movement, get great exposure for your efforts, and make a difference.
No experience is necessary — if you have an idea, give it a try. If you know someone great with a camera, please forward this message to them right away. If you know what you want to say and do, but don’t have a camera, please contact us and we’ll try to help.
Send your video or a link to your video to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your video could be as simple as you talking straight into the camera, or you can try something different and be more creative. You can make a serious video. Tell us your personal story about how concerned you are with the direction of our country and how important the 2012 election is to the future of the country. You can make a funny video. Tell a joke, write a poem, sing a song, or just make us laugh.
We know compelling videos can touch people in a way words alone simply cannot. Your creative, powerful, or touching video can make a difference. The messages of regular Americans coming together to bring real change will be more powerful than the endless line of politicians and public sector union bosses attacking us.
The deadline to submit your entry to us at email@example.com is Tuesday, September 27 at 11:59PM. Remember to use the phrase “See You at TeaCon” in your video.
