We are pleased to participate in Social Media Week 2013, scheduled February 17-22 in Washington to showcase our use of digital space for development. USAID will host several events during the week to contribute to the conversation and highlight how we rely on technology for a multitude of reasons, including program management and reporting, and general educational purposes for a range of projects, funded by USAID.

As our development partners, we’d like to invite you to showcase your work in using social media for development through video at our #Popcorn + International Development event on February 21. This is a special opportunity for you to amplify a program you are proud of, or one which you feel deserves a louder voice in the public.

How to Submit:

Please submit, no later than February 13 at 23:59 EST one two-minute or less YouTube link (per organization) to socialmedia@usaid.gov. Your video should highlight a USAID-funded project or projects that use social media to further our collective development goals. Videos, of course, should be kid-friendly.
Be sure to include your organization’s name and your organization’s point of contact.

The top videos will be previewed at “#Popcorn + International Development”, followed by a short Q&A. We hope you will join us!
Non-selected videos may be compiled to a video stream and made available to the public through USAID’s YouTube channel, to encourage ongoing dialogue about social media and its role in international development.
