Contest: Fit & Healthy Winter Challenge Video Contest

Published February 1, 2011 at 4:00 a.m. | Updated April 4, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.

No doubt kids get sick of adults telling them to turn off the TV and go outside. So, this winter, the Vermont Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports is asking young people to deliver that message to their peers ... by making a video. In the first Fit & Healthy Winter Challenge Video Contest, the state's volunteer fitness advocacy group is inviting videographers ages 17 and under to make 30- to 60-second videos promoting exercise and healthy lifestyles. The segments should show kids how to "Move More," "Eat More Colors" (i.e., fruits and vegetables) or "Turn Off the Screen." Entries must be uploaded to YouTube by March 15 to be eligible for the contest. Prizes include sports gear, lift tickets and a new Flip video camera.

Visit vermontfitness.org for rules, uploading instructions and deadlines, or email videocontest@vermontfitness.org.
