MtvU Announces Timely Contest

From Noopur Agarwal, a friend who works at mtvU:

Hey guys — I would really appreciate if you could help me spread the word about a contest we are doing. It’s for Indebted, our new campaign about the fiscal crisis.

We are asking young people (ages 18-28) to propose an idea for an online video game to help raise awareness and encourage action.  The winner will receive $10K and be credited in the game.  It’s a pretty easy way to make some extra cash.  The details on the contest can be found here:  Please spread the word to anyone you know under age 29 — they do NOT need to have any gaming experience.

And for a quick sense of what the campaign is all about, watch the 30 minute version of the documentary IOUSA (the 90 minute version has just been shortlisted for an Oscar nom!).  Here is the link:

Thanks, in advance, for your help!

Well, I’m technically too old to apply, but sounds like a great opportunity!
