Western Minnesota Online Video Contest

Symmetry is one of the broadband principles promoted by Blandin Foundation. What does it mean? Broadband speeds that are good up and down. But what does it mean on a practical basis? It means everyone’s voice (or video) can be heard.

Pam Lehmann at the Lac qui Parle EDA sent me the notice on this fun video contest. I love the idea for so many reasons.

The short story is that folks are invited to submit videos that promote tourism in Chippewa, Lac qui Parle, Swift and Yellow Medicine counties. There are cash prizes. You can submit a video via email or YouTube.

It’s a great way to get folks to help promote their area and use broadband – to start thinking of themselves as info providers as well as consumers.
