March Madness may be drawing to a close, but Michigan residents can still participate in some friendly competition. Concerned passengers and pedestrians shared their transportation visions with us and now, these videos – over 50 – are available on YouTube for a viewing contest.
Watch the Lights, Camera, Transportation YouTube Contest videos and help participating organizations win $1,000. The organization that receives the most collective views on their videos will receive $1,000 toward any transportation initiative of their choice. If any elected official comments on a video, the affiliated organization will automatically receive any additional 500 views added to their total view tally.
Transportation for Michigan, in partnership with organizations across the state, set out to capture Michigander’s transportation stories on film. We want to share these videos with the public and elected officials to help continue Michigan’s transportation dialogue.
It was clear from the 18 community forums Trans4M held throughout the state that the people of Michigan want interconnected transportation systems with active, mass and public transportation options.
Participants in the Lights, Camera, Transportation Contest echoed similar sentiments in their video submissions. Help us engage state elected officials with these transportation stories and create a culture of accountability via discussions about these stories on the T4Mstory YouTube Channel.
The competition is heating up: comments and number of views will only be counted until April 18, 2013.
