Governor Kate Brown has invited Oregon students to create a 30-second video that addresses the question: “How do you plan to celebrate the holidays safely?” The contest website gives a breakdown of the submission rules, COVID-19 guidelines and a list of low-risk ways to celebrate the holidays. Videos will be sorted into three different age groups: K-6, 7-12, and College. Governor Brown will then choose top videos from each age category, and invite the winners to participate in a video chat with her.

Students have until Dec. 18 to submit their video through a Google Form or by emailing it to Sarah.Dean@Oregon.gov along with your name, city, school, and video title.

“Because people in their 20s continue to be the most likely to test positive for Covid-19, we are trying to focus on getting young people involved in the discussion around following public health guidelines,” a spokesperson for the governor’s office said in a statement.
