Muscle Matters Awareness Video Receives Honourable Mention

Our organization recently submitted the 2011 Awareness video “Muscle Matters” to TechSoup’s 2012 Digital Storytelling Challenge. Out of 261 entries, Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s digital story has been selected for an Honourable Mention Award for Best Canadian Entry and Best Effective Call to Action!

TechSoup, which invited nonprofit organizations across the globe to submit their videos and photos for the friendly competition writes “The 2012 Digital Storytelling Challenge was a great success, with more than 250 total submissions from social benefit organizations in 24 countries, we were impressed with the quality of the photo slideshows and videos, and all the hard work that went into them.”

You can view the submissions from all the winners, including Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Thanks to Kristen Del Bianco and Manuel Grados-Andrade, two students volunteers who produced the video.  They also recruited friends and a couple of our very own 2010 Youth in Action participants, Alex Harold & Christina Massad to take part in the video.
