The Grand Rapids lip dub video done last spring by Rob Bliss has gained our city quite a bit of attention since first being posted on YouTube. As a result, Grand Rapids was named ABC World News' "Persons Of The Week" back in June, and now, the video is up for an award!

The video is going up against a video by the NFL and Jeep for an Earnie award. Now, if you haven't heard of the Earnie Awards, you're not alone. In fact, it's a brand new award being presented for social media campaigns.

The winners are chosen by popular vote of people just like you and me, so be sure to cast yours for the Grand Rapids Lip Dub as soon as possible. The Lip Dub is up for "Best Use Of Video in Social Media", and I think it should be a shoe-in for the top vote-getter.

I mean, c'mon, our video has explosives!
