BEMIDJI — The Northwest Minnesota Foundation launched a new video contest last week that aims to raise up the voices of those who call northwest Minnesota home while highlighting the unique qualities, strengths and identities of those in the community.

According to a release, the Neighbors Video Contest invites video entries from anyone who lives and works in the Northwest Minnesota region that speaks to any one or all of the following prompts:

  • What makes a good neighbor?
  • How do your neighbors contribute to the strength and/or identity of your community?
  • How does your community pull its neighbors together?

The Northwest Minnesota Foundation has posted its own Neighbors video for inspiration at www.nwmf.org/neighbors.

Entries, which should all be under one minute in length, will be accepted through Aug. 29.

Seven prizes will be awarded, including:

  • One $100 People’s Choice will be awarded based on online votes from the top 10 videos submitted.

Full details, including submission requirements and how to enter, can be found online at www.nwmf.org/neighbors.

Our newsroom sometimes reports stories under the byline "Pioneer Staff Report." This byline is used when reporters rewrite basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as an email or press release that requires little or no reporting.

Other times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
