Hey, the folks in Washington are trying new ways to better serve the public and to get the word out about that.
The latest effort is a project at USA.gov, which is their very first video contest which opens tomorrow, February 22nd and runs through April second.
The winner of the contest will get $2500.
They're asking people to submit 30- to 90-second videos showing how they used USA.gov to find and use government information to make their lives easier.
Videos can address just about anything. Maybe someone found information on getting a passport, maybe how to apply for college loans or grants.
All contest rules and information are available at USA.gov/contest.
