PhotoVoice Ad Single2

Photo Voice is sponsored by the HRSA-funded Commonwealth Public Health Training Center. Photo Voice is an opportunity for Virginia youth between 10 and 18 years of age to share what they know about public health! This project is a chance for Virginia teenagers to open peoples' eyes and minds to public health issues, challenges, and experiences that matter to them. All participants should answer one or more of the following questions with their entry:

  • What is public health?
  • Where is public health in my community?
  • What is a public health professional?

Youth, parents and school faculty are encouraged to enter.

Youth can enter at http://www.vayouth.mph.vetmed.vt.edu/. ALL youth participants will also receive a FREE $10 gift card to Starbucks, iTunes, or Wal-mart!

PARENTS of youth (10-18 years) are also encouraged to participate in a public health dialogue with a parents of youth survey, available at http://www.vayouth.mph.vetmed.vt.edu/?page_id=356 ALL parent participants will also receive a FREE $10 gift card to Starbucks, iTunes, or Wal-mart.
