The Friends of Tulare County invites youth in grades 7–12 in Tulare County to participate in the Listos CV19 Youth Media Challenge during the month of September. In collaboration with Self-Help Enterprises and the California Office of Emergency Services along with community partner Tulare County Office of Education, the purpose of the competition is to highlight youth-created art focused on promoting COVID-19 safety guidelines in languages representing Tulare County, utilizing two categories: graphic design and video.
Youth must choose one theme (Hope, Connection, Safety, Responsibility, or I wear a mask for …) and select at least one COVID-19 safety action in their media submission:
Digital print media can be designed to fit advertisements, Zoom backgrounds, bus ads, billboards, online advertising, a custom face mask, and more. Video can be designed to fit electronic platforms such as a 30-second commercial, a computer wallpaper, digital media, and others.
Incorporating a theme and a COVID-19 safety action into their original artwork, winning participants will be awarded prizes, which could include the publication of the winning pieces on local media and print platforms. Community members will judge the entries, with winners announced in October.
Innovation blossoms in trying times, and as adults find a way to adapt to the disruption caused by COVID-19, so do our youth—in their own way. The way youth adapt and cope with COVID-19 is the voice we want to hear, and we can amplify their voice by providing a platform.
