An Encore Presentation of the SCA AmeriCorps DOI Snapchat Takeover
3 SCA interns recently got to takeover Department of Interior’s Snapchat account for a day as part of AmeriCorps’ social media celebration of their 1 millionth member milestone.
As you might guess, the 3 interns (Anna Gibson, Emilia Schrier, and Alaggio Laurino) in quesion were pretty excited for the opportunity to get to showcase the impact of their SCA AmeriCorps service for DOI’s 500,000 followers. Check out the resulting video and we think you’ll agree that their performance was more than worthy of such a large audience.
Snapchat stories are supposed to disappear forever after 24 hours, but in this case we just couldn’t bear to let it go. Hit “play” below for an encore presentation of the 2016 SCA AmeriCorps #1of1million DOI Snapchat takeover.
When we asked Anna, Emilia, and Alaggio to sum up their experience with the takeover, here’s what they had to say:
“We had so much fun celebrating with Americorps and showing off our favorite park. Thanks to SCA, Americorps, and the USDOI for the internships, and for letting us share the experience!
We love to have opportunities to be silly but also to showcase the work we do, and Snapchat provided the perfect mixture of both.
It’s empowering to know that artists have a place in conservation — we wanted to show that protecting our nation’s natural treasures is not just a job for environmental scientists.”
