America's #1 Neighbor

Today the RNC’S official blog announced that John Merguerian from Van Nuys, CA won the GOP’s American Neighbor Volunteer Contest on YouTube. Merguerian’s video profile of Jason Gilde , a college student dedicated to fighting poverty in Africa, nudged out four other contenders to take the top prize as the best example of selfless service. If you haven’t seen the video yet, check it out:

Both Megureian and Gilde will be invited to attend the Republican National Convention in September, where the video will be screened for all the world to see.

Congratulations also to the other finalists, including user FXwakeboard, whose video “Once a Marine,” was selected as first runner-up.
