The 2021 AASM “Sleep is Essential” High School Video Contest entry period opens Jan. 12, 2021, and closes Feb. 16, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. EST.
The Contest is open to any individual who is 13 years of age or older and is enrolled in a high school in the United States at the time of entry. (U.S. high school students who are home-schooled are also eligible to enter. High school students who attend a Department of Defense school also are eligible for the contest, even if the school is in another country.) No purchase of any sort is necessary, and there is no entry fee. Each submission must be the primary work of one individual (the “Entrant”).
After posting your video on Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube with the hashtag #EssentialSleep2021, you must submit to the AASM a public link to the video along with a completed entry form. Contest winners also will be asked for an MP4 file of their video.
