MTV to host Inaugural Ball for Obama

1 12 2008

mtvAlright you young’uns… I know everyone is going crazy making plans for the Inauguration (January 20). But now MTV has jumped into the fray with plans for an Inauguration Ball to honor the youth-voter turnout.

A record 24 million people between the ages of 18 and 29 turned out to “Rock the Vote” and helped to get Barack Obama elected, accounting for 18 percent of the total number of voters.

The MTV-sponsored event, entitled Be the Change Inaugural Ball, will be televised live on all MTV affiliates here and across the globe. It will be held in downtown Washington, DC at the Ronald Reagan Building.

The hundreds of young people chosen to attend will be picked based on their demonstrated volunteerism. You can sign up on ServiceNation’s site (the co-sponsor) for a chance to win tickets!
