The Montgomery Bar Association honored the winners of its “Why Vote?” YouTube Video Contest at a monthly Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, November 25, 2008 at the Bar Building in Norristown.

Two grand prize winners, two runners-up and a “People’s Choice” winner presented their videos to over 60 meeting attendees.  The $1000 grand prize winner for the Under 18 category was Scott Rosnov of Plymouth Meeting, with runner-up Daniel Gorziglia of Doylestown.  Danielle Masland, a student at West Chester University, won the $1000 grand prize in the Age 18 and Over category, with Michael Avishai of Ridley Park as a runner-up.  CJ O’Brien of Norristown was selected as the “People’s Choice” winner.  Quinton Leister of Barto and Laura Valentin of Boothwyn, who were not present, were also runners-up in the Under 18 and Age 18 and Over categories, respectively.  The videos can be viewed online here.

The “Why Vote?” YouTube Video Contest, which was launched in April and sponsored by the MBA, the Montgomery Bar Foundation, and TD Bank (formerly Commerce Bank), was part of an initiative by the MBA Community Outreach Committee to encourage citizens to vote in the recent November election and to promote political activism and increase political involvement throughout the community.
