Enter the Connecting Generations Video Challenge sponsored by the U.S. Administration on Aging

The U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) is pleased to announce the Connecting Generations Video Challenge in celebration of Older Americans Month 2011.  The Challenge will bring together multiple generations to create videos featuring the roles our seniors play in connecting us all.  Anyone can participate by joining an intergenerational team—including at least one person age 60 or older and one person younger than 60—to produce a video. 

In the videos, teams will share their perspectives on how older Americans maintain and strengthen connections in our communities.  From videos about seniors using technology to connect with others to older adults assisting in schools, any video that demonstrates what seniors are doing to maintain and strengthen community connections is a candidate for this contest.

AoA will post contest entries online, where participants can view and comment on all the videos.  A panel of judges will select the top 10 entries, and the general public will then vote for the winner from the finalists.  Entries must be submitted by May 2, 2011.
