Enter the A3M Public Service Announcement Contest

It's time to pick up your video camera for a good cause. Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M) has announced a Public Service Announcement Contest with the aim of getting the word out about the need for more Asian American bone marrow donors, ages 18-44.

Let's be real: when it comes to bone marrow donor registration, our community sucks. So start brainstorming and produce a public service announcement urging folks to join the Be The Match Registry. Be creative, and think about the impact your video could make -- you could help save a life. The grand prize winner will receive $1000, and a runner-up winner will get $200.

Here are some submission requirements:

1. The PSA must stress the need for donors who are between the ages of 18-44 to join the Be The Match Registry.

2. The PSA must inform the viewer that A3M is a part of Be The Match and is looking to add diversity to the registry. More registry members who are ethnic minorities will improve the chances of minority patients in finding a marrow donor.

3. Submissions must include that donors be 18-44 in age and in general good health to register

4. Submissions must include 10, 15, and 30 second versions (for flexible media usage)
The submission deadline is April 8. Good luck. For further contest details, visit the A3M website.
