AMA Announces Video Contest and AMA Family Capitol Hill Climb

Youth riders need our help to protect the future of their sport, not just for generations to come, but as immediately as next year. The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is offering two new opportunities to include young riders in the fight for the future of their sport and everyone is invited to participate. Both are great opportunities you can help promote and protect the future of youth riding.

How you can get involved:
1) Create a video promoting why 'Kids Just Want to Ride!'
2) Attend the AMA Family Capitol Hill Climb on May 26.

Creating a video promoting why 'Kids Just Want to Ride!' is a fun family activity. The grand prize winner of the video contest will receive a trip for three to Washington, D.C., to be the guest of honor at the AMA Family Capitol Hill Climb. The event will be hosted by the sponsor of the Kids Just Want to Ride Act, U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT).

Attending the AMA Family Capitol Hill Climb is an excellent hands-on civics lesson on politics, the power of persuasion and the importance of getting involved.
