In the fall of 2012, we here at Drew’s Foundation were beginning a project to build a Public Service Announcement about Suicide Prevention. The problem was that we just didn’t know what to say…
So we got an idea– Let the people that matter tell US what to say. Have those people make their OWN PSA’s and share them with our Y-K Delta Community and the entire State of Alaska!
Spread the word and get out your cell phone! Record what YOU think, put it on YouTube, and ENTER THE CONTEST!
As part of the contest we decided to get our feet wet with a couple of small contests. We decided to call them “Freeze Frames” and let people start submitting early. Freeze Frame 1 went okay, but we can do better! Freeze Frame 2 is underway and open for entries. Deadline for Freeze Frame 2 is August 18, 2013.
All entries are automatically entered into the main festival contest as well.
Deadline for the Main Festival is September 9, 2013.
So get out that camera, cell phone, or whatever and make that message. Enter the Freeze Frame and get a few bucks extra as well!
We have some great prizes coming for the main contest but WE NEED YOUR ENTRIES!! Spread the word and let’s make this happen!! Visit www.facebook.com/drewsvideo to enter the contest and learn more!
Thank you to our sponsors for this project: SAIPH Coalition, Donlin Gold, and Drews Foundation.
Without sponsorship, this would not be possible!!
