Each month, we identify four YouTube Partners who are growing their subscribers but haven’t yet reached the 100,000 mark for our On The Rise program. You vote for your favorite in the top right corner of this blog, and the winner will be featured on the YouTube homepage and the videos channel.

For August, we’ve got a mix of educators, creative folks and personalities. Check out the nominees’ videos below, and then cast your vote in the upper right-hand corner of this blog by August 22 at 6pm PT. We’ll announce the winner on August 29.
