How it Works
Show us your creativity by using your favorite video sharing app (YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, etc.) to create a video (up to two minutes long) in one of the following categories:
- Day of Service; select a project that gives back to your community, this can be anything from sending care cards to a senior center, volunteering at a food bank, or doing a cleanup at a public park or beach.
- Original Work; using the subject of civil rights and/or social justice, create an original poem or spoken word passage that captures the essence of what you are passionate about.
A committee will review all videos and select the top 3 entries from each category. For contest questions, please visit the Special Events webpage or call the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts at 954.921.3404.
