D&D Needs Your Help: 2011 Hall of Fame Video Contest!

So you know that Dungeons & Dragons is a finalist for the 2011 National Toy Hall of Fame, right? Well they (the National Museum of Play) are asking fans to submit a short video, images, or written story telling a story about why one of the nominees are is so important to them--it's called the I Love This Toy contest.
The competition this year is pretty stiff--Star Wars figures, Hot Wheels, and Transformers are all still VERY popular. Yes, they're all Hasbro properties, so (technically) is D&D. Here's the problem--only two inductees will be selected. A few years ago, that number was three but the class of 2010 had only two.

Entries can't be longer than 2 minutes in length and there are even PRIZES:
  • 1 Grand Prize (by online votes): $250 Amazon.com gift card
  • 3 Curator's Choice prizes (determined by a panel of National Museum of Play experts): $150 Amazon.com gift card
So grab your camera/video camera, some old D&D books, a set of funky dice, and some miniatures and do your darnest to persuade the judges--and the voting public--to include the orignal fantasy RPG in the 2011 class.

Hurry: the deadline is next Friday, October 14!!
