LINCOLN – Throughout the month of June an inaugural teen public service announcement (PSA) competition has started.
According to a release from Nebraska Cures, this event is designed to promote science and engage in science advocacy.
This year’s competition titled “Nebraska Teen Vaccine Challenge” will challenge teens to create and share PSAs on social media that promote teen COVID-19 vaccination. Again, the competition will last until June 30.
Entries can be made in three categories: pictures, infographics and short videos (60 seconds or less). Entries can be made on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter and must use #NETeenVaccineChallenge and either #NebraskaCures or tag the organization.
Random $50 prizes will be awarded each week through a raffle composed of that week’s entries. Grand prizes of $200 and runner up prizes of $100 will be awarded in each category in early July.
Participants must be 13-19 years old and live in Nebraska. Additional details and a full list of rules are on www.nebraskacures.com/psa-competition.
