Only 2 Months Left to Submit Videos Showing What Injury and Violence Prevention Looks Like in Your Community

Safer Lens Video Challenge Banner

Here at the CDC Injury Center, we love stories about how injuries and violence are successfully being prevented by individuals and communities in neighborhoods, schools, and other places across the United States.

Public health professionals, students, and members of your community play a crucial role in preventing injuries and violence.

Here are just a few ways that you can show how you are impacting injuries and violence in  your community:

  • Keeping  teens safe on the road through education and graduated licensing programs
  • Making sure young children stay safe in cars during  child safety seat installation clinics
  • Supporting programs to install smoke alarms in homes throughout your community
  • Educating young people on the importance of having safe, healthy relationships
  • Initiating programs to raise awareness of falls in older adults, and working to prevent them
  • Teaching coaches, athletes and parents to recognize the signs of concussions and encourage safe play 

See more injury and violence prevention areas on the Seeing My World through a Safer Lens Challenge Rules page

Be sure to spread the word about the video contest to your community, coworkers, peers, student groups, athletic organizations, and other groups that you think may be interested in participating in this challenge!

We look forward to seeing your creative videos, which will be displayed on the Injury Center’s web page and highlighted through our social media channels!
