COVID-19 Vaccine California Youth

Messaging Contest 

Engaging California's High School & College Students as Health Literacy Ambassadors

Enter to Win up to $100 per person to Combat COVID-19 Misinformation

We are a coalition of academics, professionals, and graduate and undergraduate students volunteering our time to advocate for the health and wellbeing of California's citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We invite California high-school and undergraduate students from

underrepresented communities to participate in a contest to create short media messages about the COVID-19 vaccines and why they are effective and safe.

Competition participants are required to complete training on the vaccine and how to create effective health messages to address vaccine hesitancy within their communities.

We need your help! We are looking for public health professionals, public health departments, youth and civic organizations, vaccine specialists, and academics to judge and share the entries.
