MONTGOMERY, Ala. (Press Release) - The results are in! The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH), the Alabama Hospital Association (AlaHA), and the Medical Association of the State of Alabama are proud to announce the winners of the Mask Up Alabama Video Contest.
With face masks proving to be one of the most effective methods of preventing COVID-19 transmission, ADPH, AlaHA, and the Medical Association of the State of Alabama sponsored the contest to allow Alabamians of all ages to share why they felt it important to wear a mask. Approximately 100 individuals from across the state submitted videos, and a panel of judges from the three sponsoring organizations narrowed the videos down to the final 10. On January 18, voting opened to the public to select the top five videos.
Producers of the top three videos selected will receive a cash prize, and all five of the videos will be featured on the sponsoring organizations’ websites and social media.
