Launched: YouTube's Conventions Program

Through unprecedented partnerships with both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, we just debuted a video contest that will send one talented winner from each side of the aisle onto their candidate's campaign trail, and ultimately into their party's national convention in Denver or Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The call to action is simple: submit a video explaining why you're a Democrat or Republican in 2008 - the five most compelling and creative videos selected by each Convention will be voted on by the YouTube community who will determine the final winner.

Learn more in these two videos, featuring the Chairmen of both parties:

These contests are a part of our larger partnership with the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. As the "Official Search and Online Video Community Provider", Google and YouTube are contributing a broad range of technology and services to help delegates, members of the media and interested citizens around the country to access Convention events and information.

On YouTube, the two Convention staffs have been busy posting videos to build buzz about the exciting events in Denver and Minneapolis-St. Paul this summer - like speeches from great moments in convention history.

Check out YouTube's Convention Headquarters and submit your video to the contest today. It's your chance to get involved in what promises to be two of the most exciting political events this summer.
