In June 2012, AnxietyBC launched its Youth and Young Adults website in response to the testimonials we received regularly from affected youth/young adults and concerned parents noting the lack of anxiety information available and appropriate for young people. Our website uses fun and interactive games, quizzes, and videos to engage youth and help increase their awareness and understanding of anxiety. The number of visitors our website receives steadily increases with each passing month, speaking to the great desire and need for this important information.
This fall, AnxietyBC has decided to reach out to youth and young adults in a more personal way. We’re asking BC writers, poets, and video artists between the ages of 17-29 to enter our first ever Writing & Video Contest!
AnxietyBC wants to see creative interpretations about experiences with anxiety, including isolation, uncertainty, facing fears, dealing with stigma, and/or the distinct experience and impact of anxiety during youth and young adulthood.
Winners will receive cash prizes, have their entry posted on our website, promoted via AnxietyBC social media, posted on the Georgia Straight blog website, and have the opportunity to attend a Meet and Greet with the contest’s judges. Our diverse judges are experts in writing, publishing, editing, television, directing, and all have personal connections with mental health.
Submissions will be accepted from September 1 – October 29, 2013. Check out anxietybc.com/contest for more details!
