Videos sought for tick bite prevention, awareness



The California Department of Public Health and the DEET Education Program have launched a Tick-bite Prevention Video Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest. The purpose of the contest is to create short video PSAs to help people understand how to prevent tick-bites.

The contest is open to California residents only, and there are two $350 prize categories – age 17 and younger, and age 18 and older.

Participants must create a 30- or 60-second video promoting one or more of the following: how to protect yourself and your pets from getting tick bites; how to do a tick check; and how to safely remove a tick.

The winning videos may be featured on broadcast TV and/or radio, and on government and partner websites, and will remain available on YouTube. The winners may be invited to press events and/or asked to appear in future contest promotional videos.

Complete contest rules and entry forms can be found at www.deetonline.org/CDPHvideocontest/. Entries are being accepted through April 1.

For more information, call Claudia Erickson at the California Department of Public Health, 916-552-9762.
