The entertainment and media arts program at South Arkansas Community College recently received an honorable mention for its submission to the Cancel COVID on College Campuses video contest, sponsored by the Arkansas Department of Health.
“The Covengers: The Rage of Corona Mona” brought the program a $1,000 prize.
The ADH Office of Health Equity and its Be Well Arkansas program created the contest to challenge students across the state to produce videos that would promote ways to stop the spread of COVID-19 in higher-education settings.
Each team was asked to submit a short, fact-based YouTube video that used entertainment, emotion, creativity and/or humor to motivate other students to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines. In addition to the grand prize of $5,000, one runner-up received $2,500 and 10 honorable mentions each received $1,000.
North West Arkansas Community College captured the top prize. University of Arkansas for UNICEF was the runner-up.
