THIS COMPUTES: LENOVO SPONSORS HIRING AMERICA’S “HELPING HEROES DO GREAT THINGS” CAMPAIGN

Hiring America, a nationally syndicated television program designed to help U.S. Veterans leaving the military prepare for new careers, today announced the “Helping Heroes Do Great Things” video contest. The campaign runs through May 15 and Lenovo is a primary sponsor.

“Helping Heroes Do Great Things” invites veterans, their families or friends to submit a three-minute original video which explains and shares the experience of transitioning from active duty to civilian life, and provides positive advice to fellow veterans. Three selected winners will receive Lenovo devices to support their career efforts. The first place prize is a ThinkPad Yoga 2-in-1 PC; second place is the newly announced S500z all-in-one desktop; and third place is a ThinkPad 10 tablet with keyboard.

“We’re committed to assisting veterans as they transition from service careers to the civilian workforce and grateful to have a partner like Lenovo to support this program,” said Bill Deutch, executive producer and creator of Hiring America. “
