ABA Mediation Video Contest

Section of Dispute Resolution
Mediation Video Contest
The American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution invites you to participate in our first ever Mediation Video Contest on YouTube®. We seek creative, thoughtful, original three-minute videos that demonstrate the mediation process and benefits of mediation. The goal of the competition is to further public understanding of mediation and to promote the use of mediation as a way to resolve disputes. The video need not address only legal disputes.
The Contest is open to everyone. Employees of the American Bar Association and their immediate family members are not eligible to participate. For purposes of this contest, “immediate family members” means parents, spouses, children, siblings, in-laws, grandmothers, or grandfathers.
First Place - $1000 prize
Second Place - $500 prize
The winners will be contacted by e-mail by February 28, 2010. The winners will also be announced on February 28, 2010 on the ABA Dispute Resolution website at http://www.abanet.org/dispute.
The First and Second Place winning videos will be featured at the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Spring Conference in April 2010, with over 1,000 attendees. The videos of the winners as well as any Honorable Mentions will be linked from the Section website. The Section may also post links to the video submissions that help promote and further the public understanding of mediation.
