Meet your On The Rise nominees for June

By Devon Storbeck and Christine Wang

YouTube Partner Support

In our monthly On The Rise program, we identify four partners whose channels drive significant YouTube watch time but haven’t yet reached the 100,000 subscriber mark. Your interest has helped us find four partners who are getting closer to that milestone. They’re already driving a lot of watch time for YouTube, and you can help them grow their channels and audiences even more. It’s June, which means school is out, but our nominees this month could each teach you something new: learn how to coat your car in plastic, how to make an original greeting card, what happens when you add water to a super-absorbent polymer, or when to use “a lot” versus “allot” (versus “lots”).

Here’s where you come in--you actually have the chance to help push these partners even further on YouTube. Review their videos below, vote for your favorite here, and one of these candidates will have the opportunity to be featured across YouTube later this month. In addition to your votes, each channel will be evaluated on criteria such as viewer engagement and channel optimization techniques to decide which partner we’ll feature.

In past months, featured On The Rise partners like ManjulasKitchen and hauntedsunshinegirl have gained many subscribers and seen their careers take off, in large part due to your support. This month’s poll will be open until June 11, 5 p.m. PT, so don’t forget to vote for your favorite channel. Check back to see which channel will be featured on June 28.

If you’ve ever considered modifying your car’s paint job, powder-coating it, or changing the look of your hubcaps, you might be interested in DipYourCarcom. The channel features all manner of how-to videos, including how to apply Plasti Dip to your car, wheels or grille.


Need a card for an upcoming birthday or special occasion? Learn how to make your own with one of Kristina’s card-making tutorials. She studied graphic design and has even designed some stamps for crafting companies in the past, so she definitely knows what she’s doing.


Jason’s channel is full of fun and educational videos of science experiments, toys and projects. Watch him demonstrate a variety of scientific concepts like photovoltaics and polyacrylate water absorption, to name a few.


Emma is TESOL-certified and has been an ESL teacher for several years. On YouTube, she uploads videos that teach students (and even life-long English speakers) about everything from basic grammar to the intricate idiosyncrasies of the English language.

If you’re interested in participating or have suggestions for partners you think should be featured, we encourage you to visit our On The Rise homepage. You can check out all of our past featured partners on the Featured Partners tab, or nominate a YouTube partner to be considered for the program on the Nominate tab. Feel free to submit nominations for your own channel, or for channels you follow that you think deserve more attention or could be the next YouTube sensation. We’ll continue to feature promising partners who drive YouTube watch time, have fewer than 100,000 subscribers, and produce engaging content on a regular basis.
