Just got this from the fabulous Tara Kutz. Know anyone who might fit the bill? Send them here.
Unexcited, disillusioned, frustrated, irritated, hopeless, crushed, cautiously optimistic, demoralized, confused….
The list of terms used to describe the political state of young America goes on, and on, and on. Yet despite the widespread assumption that we’ve collectively retreated, not a day goes by where a young person doesn’t do something on their campus, or in their community, that qualifies as nothing short of amazing.
If you’re one of those young people, standing up for progressive change in ways big or small, Campus Progress and HuffPost College want to hear from you— and we want to make sure the naysayers hear from you too.
Think about what you would say if you had the chance to speak to over 1,000 politically engaged young people in person, and tens of thousands more online, about what inspired you, and what you’re doing to advance a progressive agenda.
Think about it, grab a camera (or a laptop), shoot a 1-3 minute video, and submit that video here to participate in the Campus Progress and HuffPost College National Keynote Contest. The top three winners will receive free travel and accommodations to DC on July 7th & 8th to address the 2010 Campus Progress National Conference from a stage previously graced by Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, The Daily Show’s John Oliver, John Lewis, Van Jones, Samantha Power, Ryan Gosling, and many others. The footage of the speech will also stream live on HuffPost College.
You don’t have to be in college to participate, and there is no right or wrong answer. This is your shot to share your ideas, your story, and your vision, with thousands.
