My Preparedness Story Video Challenge.
Enter by March 28 for your chance to win $2,000!

Mecklenburg County 4-H is proud to partner with the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), to announce the My Preparedness Story: Staying Healthy & Resilient Video Contest in effort to promote public awareness of how students help family, friends, and community to protect their health during disasters and every day.

Preparing for disasters and emergencies is hard work – and many students are up to the challenge. We’ve seen students help their communities prepare for disasters and emergencies by volunteering at health centers or with their local Medical Reserve Corps Unit, learning first aid and CPR, developing an emergency plan, preparing an emergency kit, and much more. Now we want to see what you can do!

If you are between the ages of 14 and 23, all you have to do is create a short video – up to 60 seconds – showing how you help your family, friends, and community stay healthy during disasters and every day. Whatever you’re doing to keep your community healthy and resilient matters. There will be a grand prize award of $2,000, second prize award of $1,000, and third prize award of $500.

The entries will be evaluated by a panel of expert judges and the top entries will be posted 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.

Don’t delay! Entries are due on March 28, 2016 at 11 p.m. EST. Full details about the contest, including submission guidelines and rules for eligibility are available on the My Preparedness Story website.
