This past month, I worked on a video project to submit to the 2012 AmeriCorps Video Contest. The theme for the contest is “AmeriCorps Works” so I tried to communicate:
- The diversity of people who work for AmeriCorps and their effect on their communities
- Who we serve
- The variety of locations served in communities across America (including different cities and variety of organizations being helped)
I ended up having Mary Alice Carnes, my AmeriCorps VISTA supervisor and fellow Theatre Action Project (TAP) coworker, give a great quick speech in my video on how the AmeriCorps VISTA program helps us out at TAP.
Public voting is currently open from now until September 1st, and I’d appreciate any votes to help me win this competition.

I’d like to thank everyone who was in my video as well as a special thanks to Lance McNeil, a VISTA at Foundation Communities, for helping me with great ideas and for creating the music for the video.
