What does living in Chicago Heights mean to you?
Is it the commotion of traffic at the Crossroads of America? What about a Trojans touchdown pass? Maybe a visit to see the pups and kitties at the South Suburban Humane Society or your kid (or spouse) sloppily gorging down a Zarlengo's sundae?
We're challenging you to capture your unique perspective of life in Chicago Heights in only six seconds. Simply download the Vine app on your mobile phone (iPhone version, Android version), and film away.
What's Vine? It's a free mobile app that allows you to create short video clips (six seconds, max). Much like a haiku poem, the idea is to see how to get the most out of those precious few seconds. Try it. It's fun. Worst case scenario, you wasted six seconds.
You can submit your favorite Vines by texting them to 708-657-7048 or by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also post them directly to the Chicago Heights Patch Facebook site.
You've got a month. We'll remind you every week. The last day for submissions will be Sept. 30. At the end, we'll make a compilation video of the best submissions.
