After weeks of intense online voting and nearly 200 video submissions from around the world, we are delighted to share the finalists for the Date with History competition.
On behalf of the TckTckTck team and our partners Climate Nexus, NRDC and the Rockefeller Foundation, we’d like to thank everyone who submitted an entry, voted for their favourite or helped us share this competition to their friends, family and networks. Your enthusiasm and vision and inspired so many people and we look forward to finding ways to share your messages in the coming weeks.
From this point on, the decision on who wins a Date with History and attends the Rio+20 Earth Summit in Brazil this June lies with our Jury. We look forward to announcing their eventual selection in a few weeks, but in the meantime, please take a few minutes to get to know our finalists and the future they’d like to see.I was so impressed by the number and quality of the video speeches – I wish we could have brought all of these kids to Rio. They have some powerful messages for the people who hold our future in their hands. – Kelly Rigg, Executive Director, TckTckTck Campaign
