Happy 2012! The new year brings with it a new batch of talented YouTube partners for the January edition of our monthly On The Rise program.

For those new to the series, here’s how it works: we identify four YouTube Partners who are steadily growing but haven’t yet hit the 100,000 subscriber mark. You watch their videos, then vote for your favorite in the top right corner of this blog. The channel with the most votes at the end of the week will be featured on the YouTube homepage and videos page. In past months, winners like evmoneyTV and ThePortraitArt have seen growth in their audience and video engagement thanks to your support.

This month we’re featuring four promising partners whose content is geared toward getting you moving - whether that means action sport stunts, gardening, fitness, or travel. You have until January 16th at 5pm PT to vote for your favorite channel, and the one with the most votes at the end of the week will secure the homepage feature on January 30th.
