Turn Around America, One Video at a Time

Our panel of celebrity judges will pick several of the winners, while visitors to the website will choose the recipient of the “Our America” award. 

Plus, some of the winning videos will appear in television ads—in part to engage voters and 2008 political candidates in a national dialogue about what is necessary to get America back on track.

At a time when working people are struggling as never before—home foreclosures, bankruptcies, soaring health care costs, jobs sent overseas—we want to know what you think we should do to turn around America.

Our goal is to start a new kind of national conversation through this video competition. It’s about making your voice heard and earning a platform in our national conversation on the future, the upcoming election and beyond.

Tell us your story.

Participants will be invited to submit online videos in any creative form. Your video must be no longer than 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
