“Educate and Activate!” was the theme for the second annual National Health Center Advocate Video Contest. Our goal of the contest each year is to encourage health center advocates, staff and patients to explore ways to use video to creatively educa
te others about Community Health Centers and to activate new and existing health center supporters to take action.
There were eight finalist videos this year that were voted on during National Health Center Week. Everyone who submitted a video will receive an FQHC pin to thank them for their support for access to quality, patient-centered medical homes for all.
The submitter of this year’s Runner-Up video was Jane Robinson with Center for Family Health in Jackson, Michigan. Jane will receive a Flip Camcorder. Congratulations, Jane!
The four videos that received the most votes were designated as our Grand Prize winners. The Grand Prize winners will each receive: one member rate 2012 Policy & Issues Forum registration for their health center; a Flip Ultra Camcorder for each individual submitter; and recognition at the 2012 Policy & Issues Forum with their video being highlighted and aired at the Grassroots Advocacy Center. The winning video submitters will also be featured during a national webinar to talk about how they made their video and to share their “behind the scenes” director’s views on advocacy
