August 13, 2014, JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas (AFNS) – Voting for the 2014 American Airman Video Contest is now open and runs until Aug. 22 at 3 p.m. CDT.
The contest launched July 1 for all total force Airmen to showcase their Air Force stories in short selfie videos.
“Every Airman has a story — and smartphone technology now allows those Airmen to share those stories with a wider audience than ever before,” said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III at the start of the contest.
The finalist videos from Air Force major commands and agencies are now available for public voting on the Air Force’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/AFBlueTube. Voters can “like” their favorite videos, and the video with the most “likes” by Aug. 22 at 3 p.m. CDT will win.
The winning video will be featured in a special presentation by Welsh during the Air Force Association’s Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition in September in Washington D.C.

“Our Airmen are an amazing communication resource,” Welsh said. “No one tells the Air Force story like they do.”
