Dan Resler, Hamilton Southeastern High School senior and staff member of the HSETV broadcast journalism class, won the “Share Your Adventure” video contest sponsored by YouTube, Lonely Planet and Intel September 26.
The video contest entailed making a travel video blog about a recent trip. The video Resler submitted two months earlier, entitled “On Nashville…,” detailed Resler’s trip to Nashville, Indiana, this summer and his observations while in the town. His winning video was first named one of the top five finalists and then chosen as the winner through fan votes on Lonely Planet’s YouTube channel. Resler was awarded a $10,000 VISA gift card for his winning video.
Resler has been making video blogs on his YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/danrezler) for the past two years that have garnered some success in the past.
