Are you a great gossip?
Ever wanted to make a commercial, or radio ad? Do you know how to tell your friends what's going on? If you answered “yes” to either of these then you should look out for a contest being run by Bermuda Hospitals Board and its charity – the Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust.
The organisations are running an Originality Matters contest for middle and high school students and college students as well. They want local students to help spread the word on the hospital's move to the new Acute Care Wing.
Everyone on the Island will need to understand what departments will be in the new facility and those that will be remaining in the existing one. For example, the Emergency Department is moving. Everyone will need to know exactly when so that they don't end up in the wrong place in an emergency.
The Hospitals Charitable Trust wants to get the message out on how you can organise fundraising – with an emphasis on “fun”.
Students can create any form of promotional material and enter it in the Originality Matters contest. You can create a TV ad, a radio ad, a poster, an informational postcard or even a song, dance or skit – whatever you think is the best way of getting your point across to other students.
Details are available from school guidance counselors or online at www.whyitmatters.bm. Completed work must be submitted by December 8, 2013.
