So we can finally announce it: Samsung has chosen Team Cool Kids to compete in their Mobile Explorers competition up in Vancouver, Canada during the 2010 Winter Olympics! My partner, Lindsay Harbert, and I are STOKED to have been chosen as a finalist but our work is not yet complete. We need your help. Here is the video that got us into the competition:
The competition pits Team Cool Kids up against 4 other highly qualified teams in a series of Olympic challenges involving video making, blogging, twittering, and social networking. The challenges have yet to be announced, but you can count on them being fun! IT’S THE OLYMPICS! Now what are we competing for? Well, $24k, a bunch of Samsung schwag, and the potential to do more Mobile Exploring with Samsung (wait, A JOB!? YES PLEASE!).
How do we win? Another good question. We will be graded on the following criteria: best balance of communication skills, creativity, originality, personality and social media networking capabilities in addition to audience votes and views. This is where you come in. We will be posting videos and promoting them while we’re up there for the competition. We hope that you can help us by checking out these videos as they come up, vote for us, and help us come home with the big grand prize!
The best way to stay up to date with us while we’re there is to follow us on twitter, facebook, youtube, and on the Samsung USA website.

So again, thank you so much for helping us get this far. We have the best fans in the world. Just a little more to go and let’s win this sucker! Stay tuned for more information!
