We all depend on the land to live. The land affects where we live and how we live. Even though we walk on it every day, sometimes we forget it's even there and can take the land for granted.

People nationwide shared their connection to the land with us in short videos and our judges selected the top 10 videos for public voting. From October 17 to November 17 you have been voting for your favorites.

Stay tuned for our December 13 eNews when we will announce the winners. They will be posted here as well. The authors could win $500, $1,000 or $2,000 – plus the one who submits the winning video gets to designate the land trust of their choice to receive $10,000 from the Land Trust Alliance!

Voting is now closed

Winners will be announced here and in the Alliance eNews on December 13!

Sample Videos

Here are two videos that demonstrate what land does for people.
