Win big prizes in the United Nations 'Get Vaxxed' song competition. Start composing a song about COVID-19 vaccines to win!
The United Nations in T&T launches a 'Get Vaxxed' song contest. The competition is NOW open to children ages 17 and under and closes on August 13th, 2021. The lyrics can touch on these themes: why people should take the Covid-19 vaccine for themselves, why people should take the Covid-19 vaccine for their family, how taking the vaccine helps T&T, and why it's important to seek out accurate scientific information on the vaccines - not myths.
Both prizes are sponsored by Massy Group.
Here are the guidelines to follow:
$3,000 first prize for the most creative original song
$2,000 special prize for the most dynamic backup singer or backup dancer in your family (parents, grandparents, siblings, or anyone who lives in your household.)
