Arlington, VA- After receiving dozens of videos from youth across the country explaining why Congress should de-fund Planned Parenthood, Live Action and Students for Life of America announced TODAY the winners of their “Tell Congress” YouTube Video Contest.

The “Tell Congress” contest was open to all high-school and college-age youth (14 to 25). Contestants were urged to use creativity in addressing Congress and explaining why they should de-fund Planned Parenthood.

Live Action and Students for Life are proud to congratulate and announce the winners for the “Tell Congress” Video Contest:

1st Place $1,000 prize:

2nd Place $500 prize:

3rd Place Survivors Camp:

4th Place $250 prize:

Honorable Mention:

Lila comments: “I am so proud of all of the creative and  bold efforts of students from across the country. Together, we stand for the protection of our unborn brothers and sisters, and we will work to expose organizations like Planned Parenthood which destroy innocent human beings and cover up the abuse of our young peers.”

Upon announcing the winners of the video contest, Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life commented, “We are so excited to release the ‘Tell Congress’ contest winners today as Congress is right now debating the next Continuing Resolution. Dozens of creative and inspiring videos from this generation of pro-life leaders have flooded the Internet calling upon Congress to de-fund the nation’s largest abortion chain and to protect women and preborn children. In the midst of a national budget and debt crisis, it is inconceivable that Planned Parenthood should continue to receive any federal funds.”
