Obamacare Video Contest!

From our friends at Young Invincibles, partnering with the US Department of Health and Human Services, we have a video making contest targeted at young adults, asking them to make their case for signing up for one of the many new health insurance options available to them than ever before as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) this fall. This is just one of the many innovative ways folks are trying to get people signed up for coverage.

The prize pool is worth up to $30,000, and over 100 prizes to be won for the creators of the best videos in three distinct categories: short films, a song, or an animated video infographic.

Videos can be submitted during the five-week period starting TODAY, Monday, August 19th. A public voting period will follow to help determine the Finalists in each category, and a final round of voting and judging will determine who takes home the Grand Prize.

I am looking forward to the entries–I imagine some will compete with Oregon’s indie-rock ballads or their newest with a hip-hop vibe:

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
