Richmond’s Childlike Faith Academy of Music and Theatre (CFA) is hosting a short video contest to help provide the public with a better understanding on children’s perspectives on COVID-19.
Open to children aged six to 16, the contest invites participants to make a video that shares their feelings during the crisis. At the same time, it allows them to use their creativity while at home. With safety always a priority, along with the co-operation of parents, contestants are being urged to make their videos without unnecessary outings from home.
Organizers want contestants to use their imaginations through the use of comedy, dance, physical expression, costumes or original music.
Guidelines for the videos, which are to be three to seven minutes in length and in English, are as follows:
• What children are struggling with most during COVID-19
• What they appreciate most, or what they have learned, during COVID-19
• Salutations to medical personnel or other frontline workers
• Any positive or encouraging message during COVID-19
• Be creative and freely express views and feelings during these challenging times
• Videos must be authentic, original and not previously shown on any social media
• All contestants must reside in Greater Vancouver
To enter, participants are required to have their parent’s or guardian’s permission, to like CFA on Facebook, share this contest on their timeline, and tag three friends. The video link should be submitted with the contestant’s name, age, parent or guardian contact number and city of residence via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entry deadline is May 17. CFA will post all submitted videos on its Facebook page at
www.facebook.com/childlikefaithacademy from May 18 to June 5.
Winners will be announced via Facebook June 6 to 8. The top three videos with the most likes on official Facebook posts will each win a prize, thanks to sponsor KMT Production Ltd. First prize is a $300 Visa gift card and $100 scholarship, second prize is a $200 Visa gift card and $100 scholarship, and third prize is a $100 Visa gift card and $100 scholarship.
