Digital Storytelling Competition Announcement for Native American Heritage Month!

Posted by on November 30th, 2016 Posted in: Announcements, Consumer Health, Events, Health Disparities


The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Tribal Health Research Office (THRO) has announced a digital storytelling Challenge, or competition, in honor of Native American Heritage Month. The Challenge, Storytelling about Health and Wellness in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities, involves development of a brief (five minutes or less) digital story that communicates how traditions and heritage promote health within American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. Submissions must be made by January 31, 2017.

The submission is a video that describes: 1) how heritage and tradition leads to health and wellness in AI/AN communities; and 2) how future research can improve the health of American Indians and Alaska Natives. Submissions are limited to a video that may not exceed five minutes. Winning entries may be posted on the NIH web site. Submissions must be substantially free of scientific jargon and understandable by viewers without scientific/technical backgrounds. The first place winner will receive $4,000; second place will receive $3,000; third place will receive $2,000; and two honorable mentions will each receive $500. Awards will be announced the week of March 6, 2017. The first place winner will also be invited to an upcoming meeting of the NIH Tribal Consultation Advisory Committee. Travel will be reimbursed for those invitees.
