The American Bald Eagle Day is not only a patriotic wave for Americans but it is also associated with the protection of wildlife. Any contest or competition associated with this semi-sacred day will definitely bring you purposeful results.
Importance of the American Eagle Day
Sponsored by American Eagle Foundation, it is an unofficial National Holiday celebrated all over the States. Bald means white-headed. In order to protect the threatened species of white-headed eagle, the American Eagle Day is celebrated to educate more people about wildlife preservation and to honor America’s national bird which also represents the national seal. It is celebrated every year on June 20th.
Organizing a video contest on this day would benefit you in a variety of ways. Automating and managing the contest with the help of an app will make things easier for you and will make the contest more transparent for participants.
Association with the American Patriotic Vein
The American Bald Eagle Day is associated with American patriotism; therefore, more people will participate in the contest in order to show solidarity with the Bald Eagle.
Corporate Association with a Divine Cause
For including corporate responsibility in company policy and improving brand reputation, most of the corporate groups prefer associating with a divine or social cause. Organizing your video contest on the American Bald Eagle Day will automatically associate the cause of saving wildlife with your brand name and improve the public image of your brand.
The theme of the American Eagle Day is ideal for a social media video contest as a lot of content is already available on the Internet. From availability of Ronald Reagan’s Proclamation 4893 to pictures and videos of the Bald Eagle, the content on this theme is diverse and versatile.

You can launch a business promotional campaign by announcing the results of the contest in a conference and making local news by inviting the journalists.
