HHS Video Prize Challenge – My Preparedness Story: Staying Healthy and Resilient

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

The HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response recently kicked off the My Preparedness Story: Staying Healthy and Resilient Video Challenge on Challenge.gov. The contest invites young people between the ages of 14 and 23 to submit a creative video—up to 60 seconds long—showing how they help their families, friends, and community protect their health during disasters and every day. The entries will be evaluated by a panel of expert judges and we’ll post the top entries on the My Preparedness Story Video Challenge website so that other people can vote on them. Submissions could be used to help others learn better ways to prepare their communities for disasters and emergencies. And contestants could win up to a $2,000 grand prize. Entries are due on March 28, 2016 at 11 p.m. EST.
