Innovation Video Contest - via Youtube

Got this in my mailbox:

The Task Force on the Future of American Innovation is sponsoring a "You Tube" video contest to highlight scientific innovation in America. Interested individuals are encouraged to create a three-minute video that demonstrates how scientific discoveries resulting from federally funded research in the physical sciences have changed our lives. Students are especially encouraged to use their creative skills and participate in the contest. The deadline to enter is the 10th of September.

The top five videos will be viewed in the U.S. Capitol on October 4, 2007 during the 50th anniversary commemoration of the launching of Sputnik. The grand prize winner will receive $1000 and an all-expenses paid trip to Washington for the October 4th activities.

The Task Force on the Future of American Innovation is a coalition of organizations from industry and academia which promotes increased federal support for basic research in the physical sciences and engineering.
