E-Democracy says share your video Minnesota Minute on the state’s nature and environment

Written by Steven Clift

NOTE: Video contest deadline extended to September 1, 2008

E-Democracy.Org is leading the online outreach for the Minnesota Minute effort of the Bell Museum.

As a complement to public service ads that will run on television, the Bell Museum invites you to submit your own Minnesota Minute (and become eligible for a prize). Visit http://minnesotaminute.org today.

If you find yourself standing out in nature or perhaps in your yard, why not do your own short video with your mobile phone or digital camera? If you have a Camcorder and know how to edit video, go on right ahead.

Here is my Minnesota Minute:

Here is some detailed announcement text:

** Announcing the My Minnesota Minute Video Contest! **

To celebrate Minnesota’s 150th Birthday the Bell Museum is sponsoring a video contest open to everyone.

Tell us how the natural world around you is changing. Share your ideas for protecting our environment and preserving our natural world. Or just tell us why a natural area means so much to you. Keep your Minnesota Minute video short (30 seconds is great, under 5 minutes required) and upload it to YouTube now. Tag it with “MyMinnesotaMinute”.

Beginning on Earth Day (April 22, 2008) weekly prizes will be awarded through the end of the Minnesota State Fair.

To see samples of other My Minnesota Minutes, visit:

The My Minnesota Minute Video Contest is open to anyone. For further guidelines visit the contest website:

For questions e-mail: info@bellmuseum.org

This contest is part of a Web and TV event which celebrates Minnesotans who are working today to protect our natural world for tomorrow.

The project is hosted by the Bell Museum of Natural History, University of Minnesota. It is sponsored by Blandin Foundation with outreach support from E-Democracy.Org.

Please help spread the word.
