UACCB receives honorable mention in ‘Cancel COVID on College Campuses’ video contest

Posted Date - 12/14/20
The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville student ambassadors won $1,000 in the “Cancel COVID on College Campuses” video contest. The Arkansas Department of Health through its Office of Health Equity and its Be Well Arkansas program created the contest to challenge students across the state to produce compelling videos that would promote ways to stop the spread of COVID-19 in higher education settings. 

Each team was asked to submit a short, fact-based YouTube video that used entertainment, emotion, creativity and/or humor to motivate other students to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines. In addition to the grand prize of $5,000, one runner-up received $2,500 and the 10 honorable mentions each received $1,000.

The video was produced by UACCB’s fall 2020 semester ambassadors, Jessica Cardenas, Brianna Bass, Briar Bumpous, Noah Weaver, and Colby Hoggard. The video, titled “Bob’s COVID Adventures,” features UACCB’s mascot Bob the Bandit making mistakes regarding CDC guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and students on campus instructing him on proper prevention guidelines.

“Our ambassadors all worked really hard on this video. They were able to work with students, faculty, and staff on our campus and have a great time doing it,” said C’aira Stewart, admissions administrative assistant and supervisor of the student ambassadors. “A big shout out to everyone who participated, edited, or was just supportive during the project! I’m grateful for the opportunity that this challenge presented for the ambassadors, as well as projecting a message that reflects the proper guidelines for COVID.”
