The American Sleep Medicine Foundation (ASMF) recently challenged high school students around the country to create a video sleep story. Over 30 aspiring scientists and filmmakers answered their call, submitting documentaries, dramas and other creative takes on sleep topics. A panel of sleep physicians and researchers had the challenging job of narrowing the field down to a winner and a runner-up. This year the third award winner was designated as the “People’s Choice” Award and was chosen by the general public.
