Ok, my video is submitted. How does voting work?

Once we’ve received all submissions, we’ll randomly break them into 3 groups. Each group will be prominently featured on Inforum.com and here on the Fargo Star blog.

  • Group 1: Jan. 27
  • Group 2: Feb. 03
  • Group 3: Feb. 10
  • Group 4: Feb. 17

During this point people may vote for their favorites. The top 2 from each group automatically move on to the finals at The Venue. The remaining contestants’ videos will get a second chance at the finals in Round 4, in which the top four advance.

  • Group 4: Feb. 10-14
