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 (less than 2 minutes) videos.

Our judges selected the top 10 videos for you to vote on. Take a few minutes to play these quick videos of how people connect with the land and Vote on Your Favorites. The authors could win $500, $1,000 or $2,000 – plus the chance to designate the land trust of their choice to receive $10,000!
