Why The Bus Project is Partying


The Bus Project last night won two Pollie Awards, which — while not quite as well-known as an Academy Award — is a big deal for anyone involved in political campaigns.

The awards from the American Association of Political Consultants honored the Bus Project for mobilizing thousands of young voters with its Trick or Vote campaign on Halloween to get people to vote. That program won the Bus Project two Pollie awards: Best Volunteer Recruitment and Best Use of Humor in an Automated Call.

A short Bus Project-produced film, "Maybe it's Your Civic Duty Not to Vote," was also nominated for an award after slapping John Stossel's mustache off his face in response to his 20/20 segment encouraging young people to stay home on election day.

Of course, we've always known the Bus Project knows what it's doing.
