Supporters of bringing the Olympic Games to Chicago in 2016 are being invited to the newly unveiled Chicago 2016 Channel (accessible via the Chicago 2016 Web site (www.Chicago2016.org) to post their own videos about "Why Chicago" is the best city as well as give the world a little taste of what Chicago can bring to the Games. The best videos, as chosen by the public, will be highlighted for special recognition.
"Chicago 2016 is truly a community-wide effort and nothing will speak louder to the world than passionate Chicagoans telling their own Chicago 2016 story," added Ryan "Through the Chicago 2016 Channel, the people of Chicago are inviting the world to our city in 2016. We believe that no one can tell the Chicago story more authentically and persuasively than our people."
Chicagoans are encouraged to visit the online channel regularly to check out their favorite "Why Chicago" videos and share their stories with one another and the world.
While there is more to come, the Chicago 2016 Channel will also be home to fun videos created by a cross-section of rising stars from the Chicago improv community. Participants, including performers, songwriters, artists, or anyone with a video camera or web cam, are encouraged to make their videos fun, unique and loaded with Chicago flavor.
