New Youth Initiatives at Toronto Public Health

The "How Healthy Can you Get Contest" is a video contest asking youth to film a one minute video showing as many healthy things as they can do in one minute. Images from selected videos will be used as a foundation for brand development for the "Be Your Best Self" Healthy Living health promotion campaign. The contest ends November 26, 2010.

The "Be Your Best Self Youth Leadership Training," being held November 27, is intended to bring youth together to build their leadership skills and to inspire them to take action on health issues. The agenda for the day will particularly focus on skill development in the areas of advocacy and health promotion campaigns.

More information about both these initiatives can be found at http://www.toronto.ca/beyourbestself.

Please share this information with your staff and encourage them to promote these two initiatives to Toronto youth between the ages of 13-19.
