With clear, concise, creative messaging, three District residents recently won top honors for video demonstrations of COVID-19 safety protocols.
In partnership with THEARC Theater, the Howard University Department of Theatre Arts, The Washington Informer Newspaper, WHUR 96.3 and WPFW 89.3, the Black Coalition Against COVID (BCAC) required competition participants to produce 30-second videos on their smartphones showing and saying why it’s important to wear masks.
The competition winners were announced during our Virtual Video Festival, hosted by BCAC member Dr. Melissa Clarke, broadcast live on Friday, June 24.
Third Place ($250): Ife Calhoun
Ife, a student and a Ward 4 resident, used the recent stay-at-home order to become an entrepreneur and launched a T-shirt business – something she loves to do.
The names of those listed above represent the top three of six finalists, all announced and their videos shown during the Festival.
