Student Health 101’s #ShareTheHealth video contest is back! We’re looking for outgoing, enthusiastic students or student groups that are interested in filming entertaining and informative videos for Student Health 101.

Videos should entertain students while encouraging them to think more critically about their health and wellness. The videos must include positive messaging on health and wellness issues that affect students (e.g. learning how to handle stress, building and maintaining healthy relationships, staying active, eating well, etc.). They should be about 3–4 minutes in length.
