20th Annual Summer Program in Population Health Video Competition Guidelines


The College of Public Health’s Center for Public Health Practice is celebrating its 20th anniversary of the Summer Program in Population Health during the week of June 17-21, 2019, in Columbus. The mission of the Summer Program is to enhance the public health workforce by offering training on the country’s emerging public health priorities taught by national experts.

In celebration of this milestone, we invite you to participate in the Summer Program’s first video competition. Simply record a 60-second (or less) video of yourself answering the following questions and share it to Facebook or Twitter to be considered for a free registration to one of the Summer Program courses.

  • Who are you, where do you work and what is your role?
  • What is something your family and friends may not know about the work you do in public health?
  • How has attending the Summer Program in the past enhanced your work in public health? How will attending the Summer Program this year enhance your work in public health?

General Rules

The contest will run from February 1 to March 22.

Participation Rules:

  • By submitting a video, the contestant agrees that The Ohio State University College of Public Health reserves the right to use any entry in materials produced. In addition, submissions may be used for educational or promotional purposes.
