This summer we held our “13 Ways to Take Care of Ourselves and Each Other Video Contest.” This effort was in direct response to the fact that suicide is often portrayed in the media as one way young people cope with life’s painful and emotionally distressing issues. We asked teens to provide alternatives to that message by creating short videos that promote healthy ways of coping.
Congratulations to our winners:
Zoey Metzner – 1st place winner of $1,000
Harrison Davis – 2nd place winner of $500
Erin Olding – honorable mention winner of $250
Shauna Contois – honorable mention winner of $250
Thank you to everyone who sent in a video, and to the family and friends of Holly Parsons who funded a portion of this project.
