Freedom Project iReporters nominated

Two Freedom Project iReport videos have been nominated for the annual iReport awards.

South Korean teacher Sunny Yang pledged to "Take a stand against slavery" as part of CNN's Freedom Project and vowed to get her students involved in the cause.

She used a stop-motion drawing to show the difference that we can make in the lives of people living in slavery.

And iReporter Renee Hong created this video to draw attention to the problem of human trafficking. The video uses stop-motion photography and statistics to educate viewers in an entertaining way.

Check out all the iReport nominees here including the Freedom Project stories in the compelling images category

      It does say it is not vetted yet but I am not sure if that means just the video. It's a sereis of notes. Not a polished article which makes it hard to follow. But WOW! Reply:February 15th, 2011 at 10:55 pmI'm still going through it. I had to take a break for dinner and to work for awhile. I noticed that it was not vetted but it sure is a lot of information.

    I'm sorry I know I'm probably off subject but I was on a grassroots Romney website and someone mention having three friends committing suicide since the election.Is this widespread,what is Fox News spouting.The poster was going on about FEMA camps and mass roundups.I know Fox is FEAR and UNBALANCED but to drive people to suicide enough already.
