Innovation blossoms in trying times, and as adults find a way to adapt to the disruption caused by COVID-19, so do you—in your own way. The way youth adapt and cope with COVID-19 is the voice we want to hear, and we can amplify your voice by providing a platform.
In collaboration with Self-Help Enterprises, the California Office of Emergency Services, the State of California, the Tulare County Office of Education, and the Tulare County Health & Human Services Agency, Friends of Tulare County is presenting a youth contest called Listos CV19 Youth Media Challenge. The purpose of the competition is to highlight youth-created art focused on promoting COVID-19 safety guidelines. We will feature three submission categories: Audio, Graphic Design and Video.
The media piece may be developed in any language representing Tulare County.
Audio messages can be designed to fit a 30-second spot for a public service announcement or commercial, and a 10-15 minute podcast.
Digital print media can be designed to fit advertisements, Zoom backgrounds, bus ads, billboards, online advertising, and more.
Video can be designed to fit electronic platforms such as a 30-second commercial, a computer wallpaper, digital media, and others.
The competition was announced in late August, and entries will be accepted throughout the month of September, with winners announced in October. The winning media pieces will be utilized locally on various media platforms. Additionally, all entries will be forwarded to the contest collaborators: Self-Help Enterprises, the California Office of Emergency Services, the State of California, the Tulare County Office of Education, Friends of Tulare County, and the Tulare County Health & Human Services Agency.
Judges will be local business community members, including celebrity judges. Initial screening of all entries will be performed by AmeriCorp.
Prizes will be awarded to audio, graphic design, and video entries and could include the publication of the winning pieces on local media platforms. These platforms include but are not limited to TV commercial, movie theater advertisement, billboards, bus wraps, social media platforms, and more.
Additional prizes could include equipment for filming, graphic design, and podcast, and adobe creative cloud licensing.
Winning entries will be pushed out through Self-Help Enterprises, Friends of Tulare County, the Tulare County Health & Human Services Agency, and collaborative partners.
