Are you stuck at home because of COVID-19? How are you staying emotionally and physically healthy? How has this impacted your life and the lives of those you love? Share your thoughts using your phone, tablet or computer to record and edit them. They say the best camera is the one that’s in your hand! Participants will be entered into a drawing for a prize! Media created will be used for our website, social media, and cable channels.
We’ll be holding a series of media workshops as part of our Remote Recorder Contest to engage and empower you in sharing your voice around the COVID-19 phenomenon!
