Linn County takes a unique approach with its yearbook video

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Has your yearbook staff tried advertising book sales in the restrooms at school? The staff at Linn County R-1 Schools in Purdin, Mo., did and even created a video from the ad campaign.

The video they created, called “Can’t Flush This!” has been submitted for Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest.

Watch the video below, then you can vote for Linn County’s “Can’t Flush This!” over at Walsworth’s Facebook page by giving it a Like. The video contest runs until Nov. 19, and winners will be selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: message and appropriateness to theme, creativity, entertainment value, viral nature as determined by the number of video Likes on Facebook and technical prowess.
