This is what I'm currently working on http://spot.us/pitches/1028-vozz-youth-cover-the-guatemalan-election.

Would love any help you can send our way, publicity especially welcome. If you know anyone that would be interested in sponsoring the training which will cost $5000, all the more awesome.

Couple of requests. Anyone with experience of doing social media for insurance companies. I've got a couple of examples thanks to the wonderful people of #usguys.
Secondly, any recent examples of campaigns/projects etc that look to explain politics to young people - teens + to be specific.

Great point Paul. Although I'm not sure how sporty I want the theme to look, I guess the subject is immaterial, I want the theme that draws attention to the post the most.

In addition as I am an ex-pat of the country where the team is, access to video and photos is limited.

Feels a bit like that's what the telecoms are doing. What do you think?
Should Telecoms have to answer for their part in the current journalism/phone hacking scandal known as Hackgate? Weigh in here.
