Video Contest With a $5,000 Cash Prize!


The UAW recently launched a video contest to get people to start thinking about the value of buying goods manufactured in their communities. Part of its BuildBuyUSA campaign, the “Make it in the USA” video contest invites participants to create videos that focus on the value of manufacturing and buying products domestically. The top videos will be reviewed by a panel of celebrity judges, including legendary Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello. Four prizes of $5,000 each will be awarded, and the submission period runs through April 25.

Here’s what you do: Create a short (under four minutes) digital video – a song, a short film, skit, poem or other — expressing what BuildBuyUSA means to you, focusing on the message that when we make products in the United States, we are also helping local communities thrive. The message should be consistent with the themes of the campaign, so check out the website to learn more.
