A Public Storage employee in Orange County, California, rhymed about cleanliness and convenience that customers can expect at facilities nationwide. Her enthusiasm earned her more than 3,000 views by the time voting ended March 5, 2018, and she won the $2,500 prize in the contest's employee category! (Photo: Business Wire)

Kaitlynn, an employee in Orange County, California, won in the employee category for her video that celebrated the cleanliness and convenience customers can expect at Public Storage facilities nationwide.

"My inspiration came from day-to-day tasks, how the facilities run and what the customers most appreciate," she said.

And James, a former Public Storage customer in Thornville, Ohio, won in the fan category for his short, but sweet video that highlighted how storage can clear clutter at home. Each winner took home $2,500.

After the company announced the contest in February-the annual month of romance-dozens of Public Storage employees, customers and fans submitted poems, sonnets and rhymes that paid tribute to Public Storage, moving and organizing. After careful consideration, the company announced six finalists-three fans and three employees-to have their inspirational organization transformations posted to the Public Storage YouTube channel last week.

According to contest rules, their fates were then in the hands of YouTube viewers. The finalist videos with the most views by 9 a.m. (PST) on March 5, 2018 were the winners.

Watch the videos on the Public Storage YouTube Be Our Valentine playlist, and learn more about the finalists and what inspired them in a newly-published blog article.

The company will hold more video contests soon. To learn more, please follow Public Storage on Facebook and Twitter.
