Announcement of Requirements and Registration for “Seeing My World through a Safer Lens: What Does Injury and Violence Look Like in My Community?” Video Contest
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the launch of the Seeing My World through a Safer Lens: What Does Injury and Violence Look Like in My Community? video contest. The CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (Injury Center) is reaching out to students, injury and violence professionals, and the general public throughout the United States to answer the question, ``What does injury and violence prevention look like in my community?'' Through the Seeing My World through a Safer Lens video contest, Contestants can create a short video that reflects injury and violence prevention activities that are in line with the Injury Center's key topics and messages. This Challenge will raise awareness that, despite the fact that injuries and violence are serious public health issues, they are actually preventable. By having Contestants create personalized videos to submit to the video contest, we will show how proven prevention strategies are being implemented in various forms of communities. Further, by showcasing the winning videos in each category of submission (Student View, General Public View, and Injury and Violence Professional View), we will show that steps for injury and violence prevention can be taken by anyone and anywhere in the U.S.
