Another government PSA? Zzzzz....No, wait! This is YouTube.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) wants you to take an active role in sharing information about the prevention of H1N1 flu, or swine flu. That's why, today, they've launched a YouTube contest asking citizens to create PSA's that increase public awareness about the flu and ultimately reduce the number of H1N1 cases.

The person who creates the most compelling PSA will receive $2500 and will have their PSA run on national television. A panel of judges from the government, public and private sector will pick the video finalists, but public voting will decide the ultimate winner. Here's HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius with more information about the contest:



Whether your video is a funny sketch about how to wash your hands, or a serious piece about the importance of staying home if you contract the flu, you're encouraged to submit it now as a video response to this video. Just make sure you mention www.flu.gov in your video as an information resource. The contest ends on August 20, 2009.
