Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
Who remembers Harvard Baseball team’s “Call Me Maybe” video that went viral? It started with a team, a catchy song, and a smart phone. The Junior Volleyball Association is looking for the next best thing, and not only could this video go viral, it could win over $5,000 for the individuals that create it.
This seems like a no brainer for a team that spends numerous hours together each week in a volleyball gym, hotel lobby, and on occasion, the airport. As a way to promote the sport of volleyball and give back to the coaches who dedicate their time to grow the game, the JVA created this fun contest. The hope is that teams come together, get creative, and bond while making a video that promotes the sport they love.
With a deadline of March 2nd, the Junior Volleyball Association will select 10 videos from those shared on the organization’s Twitter feed using #WeAreJVA and FaceBook timeline, and award those videos a starting prize of $250. Then the 10 videos will be posted on the JVA YouTube Channel for the real contest to begin. The video with the most views by March 9th will win the grand prize of $5,000 and a second video chosen by the JVA staff and Board of Directors will win $2,500.
There are not many rules to this contest, only that the team’s Coach or Club Director is a member of the JVA. If it’s an organization who, just 2 months ago announced it was giving $200,000 back to it’s member clubs, and is now announcing another $10,000 being awarded to members, this is an organization that, as a volleyball coach or club director, I would want to be a part of.
About the Organization:
The Junior Volleyball Association (JVA) is a non-profit organization that promotes the growth of youth volleyball and junior volleyball through program and resource development, education and events. The organization was formed in 2006 with a primary focus of being a voice for junior volleyball club directors and coaches, and to this day is the only organization that is focused entirely on youth and junior volleyball.
