    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is holding a contest to select a supporter who will give a speech on stage at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia to formally nominate her as the party’s presidential nominee, NBC News reports. 

    Supporters have to submit a video explaining what Clinton’s nomination means to them and why they think she should be the next president. 

    Judges are looking for “comfort on camera, charisma” and “a compelling personal narrative,” according to the contest rules. The winner will be flown to Philadelphia to speak at the event and will receive one night in a hotel for an estimated value of $2,500.

    The campaign has been holding a number of high-profile contests to inspire small-dollar fundraising, including dinners with Clinton and tickets to see the Broadway hit "Hamilton" with the former secretary of state.
