LAST DAY TO VOTE (1/15). VOTING CLOSES AT 11:59 PM Central European Time
***Formerly titled "Shawn to Davos: Third Time's a Charm?"***
If anyone remembers, Nerdfighters tried hard last year to get Shawn to Davos. Despite admirable attempts and hard work on everyone's part, Shawn was not selected
Shawn is a finalist for this years selection! You can go to Youtube
and vote for him (his video it titled "A Message to Davos")! And check out his Davos video
, too [also, this blog
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Shawn, he is an extraordinarily awesome Nerdfighter who runs the UnculturedProject
channel on Youtube, and has set forth to combat poverty
Davos is a city in Switzerland, where the World Economic Forum
resides. The WEF is a not-for-profit organization committed to bringing together business and world leaders to tackle global issues that are of interest to economic development and social progress.
WEF has organized the Davos Debates, where world leaders get together and pitch ideas about global issues that need to be solved. WEF has given a member from the Youtube community a chance to attend the Davos Debates.
With our support, we may be able to help Shawn get to Davos, something he has been passionate about going to for three years now.
EDIT: While I'd really like to see Shawn go to Davos, the other four finalists have very pressing topics that also need to be addressed immediately by the world; watch the other videos, and if one of the other contestants is propagating a cause that's closer to your heart, then vote for them
