The deadline for the First Annual Imperial YouTube Video Contest has been extended to Friday. The deadline was to  have been Monday.
Community Development Director Jason Tuller said “a handful” of entries had been received by Monday.
The city is asking people to create a video of things to do in and around Imperial. The video receiving the most views wins $1,000 in Chamber Bucks.
If the winning video goes viral (more than a million views) then the prize money is doubled.
Second place receives $500 in Chamber bucks, while third place takes home $250 in Chamber bucks.
A list of rules is available at the city office. Tuller said the project could be an organization’s fundraising project.
The viewing contest runs from Sept. 16 through Oct. 15 at 4 p.m. on YouTube, when the viewing will be counted.
Tuller urges particpants to advertise the viewing through Facebook, family and friends.
