Myspace today launched a contest for users called "MyState of the Union," where myspacers submit 60 second videos that express their views on the current state of America and what changes they think need to be made.

The contest seems to be structured similar to that of American Idol – a panel of celebrity/expert judges judge and nominate videos, but other MySpace users ulitmately choose the winner.  The panel of judges is made up of politicians including former Senate Majority Leader Dr. Bill Frist and John Podesta the former White House Chief of Staff as well as political bloggers Markos Moulitsas Zúniga of DailyKos and Jonah Goldberg of National Review Online. 

The winner will be announced on January 22nd, the day before the President delivers his own State of the Union Address and will receive an all-expense paid trip to Washiongton, DC. 

Tom Anderson, president and founder of MySpace calls the contest “another way for our community to express themselves and make a positive impact on the world,” in a press document. “2007 is going to be a big year for political engagement on MySpace and this kicks things off in the right direction.”
