Students Invited to Submit Videos for “Take Your Shot” PSA Contest
MCPS middle and high school students are invited to produce video public service announcements (PSAs) to encourage young people to talk with their friends about the importance of getting the COVID-19 vaccine. The “Take Your Shot” contest invites students to produce 30- to 45-second videos exploring one of the following themes:

Judges will select up to 25 videos, in English and Spanish, and use them on the county’s social media channels. Three high school and three middle school videos will be awarded prizes in early summer.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 4. Contest rules and entry forms are available here.
The contest is sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services in partnership with MCPS. Students can earn five Student Service Learning (SSL) hours for submitting an entry that meets all requirements.
