With the national prominence brought to the anti-bullying movement by Joel Burns, it’s only appropriate that another North Texan is hoping to make an impact.

Plano-based Janet Dowell is one of five finalists in a competition sponsored by the Logo Network to create a brief (25 seconds or shorter) public service announcement video to squelch anti-gay rhetoric.

Dowell’s is among the best, but all are good and deserve a look-see. You can view all the videos here, and vote for your favorite — Dowell of course hopes her fellow Texans support her, but just voting is a good idea. The contest runs through Jan. 25.
