There is a new competition being launched by the state for videos made by and featuring Maine kids. The competition is part of Maine DHHS and Maine CDC’s plan to make vaccine available to children ages 5 to 11.
DHHS and DOE invite Maine youth ages 5 to 17 to submit 30-second videos that they believe will encourage other children, along with their parents, to get a COVID-19 vaccine. This could include, for example, information on the vaccine’s safety and efficacy or the impact of not getting vaccinated.
Children can produce the video submissions on their own or as part of a school activity. Participation is limited to Maine residents. Winners will need to have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian. The deadline for submission is 6pm on November 22.
