Don’t Be a Zombie Video Contest
Lewis County is launching a media contest for Lewis County residents to submit
their best videos online.
The “Don’t Be a Zombie” video contest is free to enter and is open to all
residents of Lewis County. Videos must be 30 to 60 seconds in length and can
feature teams, youth groups, or individuals.
There will be a grand prize of $1,000 awarded to the team or individual who
creates the winning video, $500 for second place, and $400 for third place.
Videos will also be posted on Facebook where the community can vote for their
favorite and that winner will receive $500. All videos need to be posted to the
website no later than 11:59pm on August 6th, 2020 for consideration. Winners
will be announced at a Red Carpet event to be scheduled in cooperation with the
Lowville Town Hall Theater in line with the state’s COVID-19 guidelines.
The videos need to be centered around the “Don’t Be a Zombie” theme and can
feature safe disposal of prescription drugs, the dangers of underage drinking, the
dangers of prescription drug use, perception of harm by Lewis County youth or
likewise. NO videos of marijuana, heroin, or other illicit drug use will be
considered. Videos will be judges on creativity, originality, quality, and cohesion
to the theme. Videos will be used online, and on television as part of the coalition’
s messaging and promotional material leading up to the Zombie Run in October.
A full list of rules and a submission field can be found at www.uplewiscounty.org.
