Winners Selected – Seeing My World through a Safer Lens Video Contest

Photo: Injury Prevention Starts with you. Boy standing.The CDC Injury Center asked – What does injury and violence prevention look like in your community? And injury and violence professionals, students, and the general public from around the country came together to answer that question by submitting videos to the Seeing My World through a Safer Lens video contest.

The video contest received 25 eligible submissions on topics from older adult falls to cyber bullying, from helmet safety to child passenger safety, and from violence prevention to teen driving safety. Even though there was a wide representation of injury and violence topic areas to choose from, only three videos could be selected as winners.

A panel of expert judges scored each 90-second video in the categories of creativity, use of an injury or violence topic area, communication of the positive injury or violence message, length of video, and video and audio quality. Each winning video will be awarded $500.00 and will be featured on the CDC Injury web pages and social media channels.

There were many other submissions, which can be viewed in the contest’s submission gallery.

The contest was held in honor of the Injury Center’s 20th anniversary as a way to show the importance of activities that were Photo: Man on streethappening in communities across the nation to prevent injuries and violence.

Injuries and violence affect everyone, regardless of age, race, or economic status. And Americans 1 to 44 years in age are more likely to die from an injury- like a motor vehicle crash, fall, or homicide- than any other cause. But injuries and violence are preventable! The research done at the CDC Injury Center leads to a better understanding of injuries and violence and shows how they can be prevented.
