Video contest encourages Wyoming teens to share social distancing stories

The Wyoming Teens “Take2” video competition encourages Wyoming teens to share their social distancing stories and experiences during the unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

High school students ages 14-18 may submit a two-minute video addressing the following questions: How are you spending your time during isolation? What have you done during isolation to help your community? What are some creative ways you are social distancing?

Videos must be submitted before May 30 by email to or by uploading to social media using the #WYOTeensTake2 and #MyCOVIDStory hashtags. The Cheyenne Mayor’s Youth Council will select 10 statewide winners who will receive four complimentary tickets from the University of Wyoming for the first home football game, pregame field passes to Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium and a meet-and-greet with Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon.

Submissions will be judged on creativity, school appropriateness and how they address the three required questions. Use of copyrighted material will not be accepted. The contest is a partnership with the , the University of Wyoming Athletic Department and Gordon. Submitting gives authorization for videos to be shared and promoted by the City of Cheyenne and UW. 

For questions, contact Jan Spires of the Mayor’s Youth Council at 307-637-6251.
