Earlier this month, the Department of Health and Human Services and the White House launched a Flu Prevention PSA contest, and in just a few weeks we received 240 entries uploaded to the HHS YouTube channel. Last week, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and a panel of experts reviewed the entries to ensure they followed the contest criteria, and from there picked the top 10 best videos.
Now it’s your turn. Please go to the HHS YouTube channel and cast your vote for the best video. Keep in mind that the goal of this PSA is to help remind our friends, family and communities that the 2009 H1N1 flu could impact all of us, so make one of your criteria how well it gets the message out on how to prevent the flu. The winner will get a $2,500 cash prize and their video PSA will be broadcast on national television. The contest ends on September 16th – have fun!
