Balance and Falls SIG 2nd Annual Video Contest

The ANPT BFISG video contest is accepting entries through August 31st, 2019. This is the second year for our video contest to promote #NFPAD. Our aim is student led videos that promote evidence-based fall prevention and spread awareness of the roles that PTs play in fall prevention and awareness.

Here is the link to the 2018 winner.

The team from University of Nebraska won $500 for their good work, and the video helped the cause of #NFPAD!

Competition Objectives:

  • To increase awareness regarding the role of physical therapists in decreasing injurious falls within the community
  • To provide physical therapy students with a meaningful experience that strengthens their passion towards the profession

Competition Rules:

  • Video Theme is to answer one of the following questions: How do physical therapists decrease injurious falls within the community? What are some patient education techniques that you have used in the clinic to prevent falls? What are some novel treatment techniques that you have utilized in the clinic to prevent falls
  • Deadline to enter is August 31, 2019
  • Video should be a minimum of 30 seconds and no longer than 45 seconds in length

Once the submitted videos and applications are reviewed they will be posted to the ANPT Balance and Falls Special Interest Group (SIG) Facebook Page and Twitter Accounts September 23rd, which is the first day of Fall and National Fall Prevention Awareness Day.

Only 1 video per school will be allowed to enter the competition. If there are multiple student videos within one school, we recommend hold a sub-competition and advance only one winner video towards the #fallpreventionchallenge from that school.

To win, “LIKE” and “SHARE” the original video. Points are awarded as follows: 1pt for a “Like”, 3pts for a “Share” or “Retweet”. Be sure to include the hashtag: #fallpreventionchallenge in your “share” or “retweet”. A leaderboard with the running total for each school will be kept on the ANPT Balance and Falls SIG website and updated weekly.

The video that gets the most points combined will receive $500 from the ANPT Balance and Falls SIG. Submission Guidelines. Videos should be submitted directly to BalanceFallsSIG@gmail.com.

Winning the contest will add a high prestige item to your C.V.! Entering the contest will also provide a notable item- and will help reduce preventable falls!
