March 10, 2011; Source: Pro Bono News | The finalists in the 5th annual Do Gooder Nonprofit Video Awards are posted and ready for your viewing and voting! A field of 1,350 videos submitted by 800 organizations has been culled down to a mere 16 finalists in four categories. The sponsors of the contest are See3 Communications and YouTube with additional support from the Case Foundation, Flip Video and the Nonprofit Technology Network. Each of the four winners will receive a $2,500 grant from the Case Foundation, a video camera, and free registration to the 2012 NTEN conference. But the real value to you is that, in the viewing of these sixteen videos, some ideas of your own may begin to percolate. Let us know what your favorite is after you vote!—Ruth McCambridge
