Contest: Win an AED for Your School

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest foundation is sponsoring a contest for schools to win an AED by creating a video. For the contest teams of students write, film, star in and edit their own short (3–5 minute) video promoting the importance of knowing how to do CPR and use an AED. The SCA Foundation panel of judges will review videos for overall message, creativity, originality, student participation, and likelihood to raise awareness about saving lives threatened by sudden cardiac arrest. Finalists for all categories will be posted on the SCA Foundation’s website and its YouTube Channel and promoted to schools nationwide.
