CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., Mar. 15 /CSRwire/ - The polls have closed, the digital smoke has cleared and the first round votes have all been tabulated, narrowing down 29 entries to 10 finalists in the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship's 2010 Film Festival.
There were more than 30,000 views of the videos during voting by the general public. Selection of the winner from among the 10 finalists now goes into the Boston College Center's online Member Community. This year's 10 finalists in alphabetical order are: Accenture, Allstate Insurance Company, Amway Corporation, Campbell Soup Company, Consolidated Edison Company, Dow Chemical, Ernst & Young LLP, Fed Ex Corporation, ITT Corporation and Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP.
All 10 of the final videos will be showcased at the Center's 2010 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, April 11-13, at the InterContinental Hotel in Boston. The Film Festival will culminate with a red carpet announcement of the winner at the conference. Beginning today and continuing through April 2, Boston College Center members, or nonmembers who have registered for the conference, can vote in the Center's online Member Community.
The competition among the 10 finalists starts anew with the voting in the Member Community, as the first-round votes do not carry over to the final voting. Among this year's finalist are last year's winner, FedEx Corporation, and the 2009 third-place finisher, Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP.
An opportunity to vote in the final round of the Film Festival is just one advantage to joining the Center’s online Member Community. Created exclusively for Boston College Center members, it is a collaborative community where participants can learn, collaborate and support one another, mentor or be mentored, and try out new ideas in a safe, supportive environment.
