The Obama administration held a video contest asking youth supporters to submit their videos in an effort to mobilize young people to help educate and inform one another about the Affordable Care Act. Tonight during the live event the organizers admitted only 100 people sent in videos.
That’s like signing up six people on Obamacare in one day.

Back in August 2013, Young Invincibles, in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, launched the Healthy Young America Video Contest, an effort to mobilize young people to help educate and inform one another about the Affordable Care Act. Participants submitted their videos, the public weighed in, and a finalist was selected in each of three categories: “You Are Not Invincible,” original song performance, and animation.
Erin McDonald was announced as the overall Grand Prize winner with her video “Forget about the Price Tag” in a Google+ Hangout featuring Kal Penn and White House Health Care policy expert Christen Linke Young on December 2.
During the Hangout, Christen and Kal also helped preview the White House Youth Summit coming up on December 4 and took questions about what the Affordable Care Act means for young people. You can tune into the Youth Summit starting at 2:00 pm ET on whitehouse.gov/live.
Here’s the winning the video:
“Forget About the Price Tag” (Figures)
