Ever want to be a film critic? Now is your chance! Over the past month staff at the American Diabetes Association have been working hard to narrow down more than 100 video submissions to a list of the top 10 finalists in the Share Your Vision to Stop Diabetes® video contest. There was so much talent, so many creative ideas, so many compelling stories that – quite frankly – we need your help.
From today until January 24 at midnight (EST), you can vote for the most compelling video at stopdiabetes.com. There are ten finalists and the top three will receive an Apple® iPad®, which includes the grand prize winner who will also have the opportunity to be a part of a future Stop Diabetes public service announcement.
So here are the top ten finalists. Check out their videos and be sure to let us know which one you like the best!
Laurie Basloe of Brooklyn, NY
Max Gabbay of Gaithersburg, MD
Kenneth Garner of Madison, TN
Bethany Hughes of Staunton, VA
Brett Roberson of Phoenix, AZ
Toby Smithson of Vernon Hills, IL
Anna Katherine Tollett of Ruston, LA
Rebekah Tripp of Sherman Oaks, CA
Maria Wagner of Pittsburgh, PA
Rachel Wright of Littleton, CO
Once you have seen all the videos, go here to vote for the most compelling one. Tell your friends, share the videos with your family, and help us choose the video that best explains why we want to Stop Diabetes!
P.S. Like voting? Don’t forget that until February 20th, you can vote for us in Members Project®, a partnership between American Express and TakePart.
