With 62 entries from 16 countries we had a very tough time narrowing it down to the top 10 winners!

There were two categories, Strider Staff Pick and People's Choice, with 5 winners in each. With over $20,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs we had a tough time picking the top 5 for the Staff Picks from all of the amazing videos. The film makers did a great job getting the word out as well! There were over 48,000 views on YouTube in less than one week. The winners for the People's Choice were chosen based on the quality and quantity of comments on the videos uploaded to our YouTube channel.

Don't despair if you weren't selected as one of the top 10...we'll be getting you a $50 Strider product voucher by email (expect to see this by Aug 17th).

If your video is one of the videos below watch for an email explaining what we'll need from you in order to get you your prize money!

In the end the top 10 videos came from 6 different countries!

Drum roll, please...
