We’ve hosted a video contest for high school and middle schools across Minnesota the last two years as part of our efforts to teach kids about influenza prevention. We’re excited to announce we’re hosting the contest again this year!
The contest gives students a chance to use their creativity and video skills to create a public service announcement about the importance of flu prevention. Last year’s winner was Bloomington-Jefferson High School, with the video featured above. The students who did the video earned $3,000 for their school.
We’ll award the top three videos $3,000, $1,500, and $1,000, thanks to generous support from Kohl’s Cares. The three winning videos will be distributed to middle and high schools throughout Minnesota. We’ll also host a celebration at the winning school to recognize the students’ work.
To find out if your school is eligible to participate or to learn more about the rules, talk to your school media department or nursing staff. The submission deadline is Jan. 27, 2012. Videos should be submitted to our Flu Prevention group on Vimeo.
The video from St. Mary’s School in Owatonna, our second-place winner from last year.
