Virginia PTA Student Video Contest

Create a short video using the contest theme: Tending to Your Mind video contest 2022 23 sm

We always seem to be so busy with everything – academic achievement, extra curricular activities, family, friends, and so on. Certainly not everyone can avoid mental health problems—but we can do our best to let those around us be aware of taking care of their emotional health in their lives.


The contest is open to middle & high school students from a local unit PTA/PTSA in good standing.


Videos will be judged on how well they address the topic, as well as the quality of the production and the creativity of the video.

The video should be between 45 seconds – 2 minutes long. Videos exceeding the time limit will be disqualified.

No professional assistance can be provided to produce the video. The format of the video is up to the students (e.g., commercial, news broadcast, music video, etc.)

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Saturday, February 18, 2023
