Kieran Muller (@drumsforants​ on Instagram) and Christina Liggitt (@christinaliggitt96 on Instagram) have each won a $100 VISA gift card and a cultural prize for sharing how they stay well, especially during COVID-19. Both Kieran and Christina have also been entered in for the grand prize draw for a $500 VISA gift card!​

The Youth and COVID-19 Social Media Contest aims to engage and support youth wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic. The five-week contest focuses on a different theme each week and aims to encourage young people to pursue their favourite activities with a weekly prize as extra incentive.

The campaign’s five themes are geared towards promoting the five pillars of health for youth during the pandemic:

  • Week 1: Get Fit (focus on physical health) – Contest runs Aug. 2 to 8 – CONTEST CLOSED
  • Week 2: Get Rooted in Culture (focus on drawing strength from culture) – Contest runs Aug. 9 to 15 – CONTEST CLOSED
  • Week 3: Get Centred (focus on emotional health) – Contest runs August 16​ to 22
  • Week 4: Get Perspective (focus on mental health and wellness) – Contest runs Aug. 23 to 29 – COMING SOON!
  • Week 5: Get Skills (focus on being proactive with personal growth) – Contest runs Aug. 30 to Sept. 5 – COMING SOON!

The campaign also features three new Indigenous youth profiles: Jordanna Roesler of the Dene First Nation, Taylor Ackerman of the Cowichan Tribes and Adam Gauthier of the Tla’amin First Nation, who is also a youth coordinator for the Vancouver Island region at the FNHA. Their stories aim to inspire and support young people to stay mentally and emotionally well during the pandemic with messages, advice, personal videos and youth resources.
