As parents of young kids it's a no-brainer that I get them flu shots. But what about parents of teens? Last year the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expanded its flu recommendations to include teenagers.
The "I Don't Want to Miss" campaign is a national contest that puts teens in the spotlight to talk about flu education and prevention.
The challenge? Teenagers are invited to create a 45-60 second video PSA on cold and flu education and prevention and how it can help make sure they don't miss out on fun events like prom. Videos have to be uploaded to SchoolTube.com (subcategory under PE & Health)by Mar 11, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. EST
The Grand Prize One first place winner will have singer/songwriter and former American Idol finalist, Brooke White, perform an acoustic concert at their school!
Visit http://www.idontwanttomiss.com for information for parents, teens, and teachers. Then let your teen borrow your video camera, and I bet they'll let you see Brooke White if they win!But hurry, video have to be up my March 11th!
I wish they had contests like this for moms but probably my video would be about how I don't want to miss out on dinner with my friends, or a good night's sleep. I guess this contest is better left to the teenagers.
