Watch video: Submit your question for President Obama

More details on the campaign (via YouTube descriptions of the above videos):

On Tuesday January 25 at 9 p.m. ET, President Obama will deliver his 2011 State of the Union Address, which will be streamed live on YouTube on http://youtube.com/askobama . This year, you can do more than just watch the speech: you can also submit your questions for the President for an exclusive YouTube Interview that will take place just two days later, on January 27.

Health care. Education. Foreign policy. What would you like to ask the President about the most important issues our country faces?

Go to http://youtube.com/askobama to submit your question.

A few tips:
1. Video questions are highly preferred. Videos should be about 20 seconds long and be sure to ask the question directly.
2. Speak clearly and try to film in a place with minimal background noise. Keep the camera as still as possible.
3. Feel free to be creative (use props, charts, etc.) to help your question stand out. If you have time, find an interesting backdrop that may help reinforce your message.
4. Submit your question early.

You have until Wednesday January 26 at midnight ET to submit your question.
