The Southwest Utah Public Health Department (SWUPHD) has announced the winners of the “Click It, Don’t Risk It” video contest:
Elementary: Caleb Ence from Lava Ridge Intermediate (for his entry “Angry Birds”).
Secondary: Karen Miller, Debora Cruz, Ethan Brown, & Piero Scattolon from Success Academy (for their entry entitled “Buckle Up Like Your Life Depends On It”).
The contest encouraged elementary and secondary school students from the southwest part of the state to create a 30- or 60-second video about seatbelt safety as a way for them to have fun with family, friends, and other students while getting the word out about the importance of wearing a seatbelt. The winners were selected by most “likes” on the SWUPHD Facebook page and they received $300 plus $700 for their school for each category.
“Our goal was to engage youth in creating seat belt safety messages for the public,” said Jordan Mathis, SWUPHD Health Promotion Director. “They did a great job and we were impressed to see the number of people who supported these kids in their efforts on Facebook.”
The videos can currently be viewed on the front page of the
