I recently created a short video about Pleasanton. I enjoy taking pictures and videos as my hobby, and I thought it would be a fun project to share with both my 3rd graders who study Pleasanton, and also for my own children. I want them to remember and appreciate their childhoods and this wonderful place where we live.
Then I entered it in the Lonely Planet Video Contest. The competition was tough, but Lonely Planet chose my video as the best in the category “No Place Like Home.” I am still in the running, going against only four other finalists who are competing for the grand prize! However, at this point in the competition, registered YouTube voters are left to decide who the winner will be. I think it will be a tough one to win, but maybe if I get Fairlands and our fellow Pleasanton residents to help us, I might have a shot.
The prize package is worth about $10,000, so it’s a pretty big deal for me! So, please check it out. If you like it, and are willing to help me out, I would be honored! Please vote for my video everyday, and help spread the word to everyone and anyone you think might be interested.
It would mean a lot to me!
Anyone who has a YouTube account and is logged in can vote up to one time per day, but only until November 15th. (so that leaves no time to waste)
My video title is: “There Is No Place Like Home: Pleasanton” by Magrela Canela
