B-Inspired! Contest Kick Off

After much hard work, planning, and thinking, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here!

The Jade Ribbon Youth Council and the Asian Liver Center are proud to present the first annual

B-Inspired! Contest

B-Inspired! Contest is new! Exciting! Inspiring! Rewarding! Fulfilling! Educational! Awareness-bringing! HBV-eradicating! And TOTALLY AWESOME!

Any high school student can enter a 500 word essay or 3 minute video to one of 2 given prompts:

Prompt 1: Please tell us how you or someone you know has been affected with hepatitis B and how you learned to find value in the face of such adversity.

Prompt 2: Make a statement to the Obama Administration asking for increased attention to hepatitis B.

We hope that this contest will bring more awareness to the urgency of hepatitis B eradication and unite more high schoolers to take charge in hepatitis B outreach.

Of course, what would a contest be without prizes? B-Inspired! Contest winners will receive a ticket to California’s Great America, recognition by the Asian Liver Center at LIVERight 2009, and many many many more to come. Check the website or Facebook group for any updates.
