Obama has called for a service initiative called Renew America Together. They ran a video contest to get the word out about what service is and why it’s important to different people. I thought it would be a good chance to try out the Flip minoHD and get the youth together to do something creative. They did an awesome job. We did the interviews and editing in just about one hour. One of the freshman girls in our youth group did all the editing (I just stuck the music in the background after she had to leave). She did an amazing job and the end result is pretty great. You can watch the video below. The winners of the contest receive a personal phone call from Michelle Obama, which would be cool. For the video, I simply asked the youth what they thought service was and why it was important to them – they also shared some of the past service projects they’ve been a part of. Enjoy!
