Contestants will shoot a video no longer than 30 seconds using a smartphone or video camera telling their story of service to include why they're in the Air Force, what they do in the Air Force and why they love what they do in the Air Force.
For submission, the video must be uploaded to a personal YouTube channel. The video link must be emailed along with the contestant's name, rank, base, home unit and major command to the Air Force Public Affairs Agency social media team at email@example.com.
