Sunday, February 22, 2009 $27,599 Anti-Bailout Video Competition

Say NO to Bailouts. Submit a video. Win $27,599.

That's the heading at Right.Org's website and it's legit. A new grassroots website is calling on Congress to stop the bailouts and has started a video contest to help with their efforts.

You are probably as upset about the bailouts as we are. Well, Washington isn't listening, so let's turn up the volume. Come up with an idea, grab a camera, and send us your best 30-second video opposing government bailouts.

Be creative. Make us laugh. Teach us. Above all, make us oppose the bailouts. The person or team that submits the "best video" will win $27,599 - one person's personal bailout burden.

The prize:
first place: $27,599
second place: $2,759
5 runners-up: $275 Apple Store gift certificates

Video length: 30 seconds

: "Why you oppose the bailouts."
