SCRIPT 1 Concept/Storyboard: A child’s grandmother just received her vaccination yesterday. Everyone is very excited and happy that she is safer now. She telephones her grandchild(ren) and asks them to visit her that day for a much-needed hug. They have to explain to her that it is not safe yet but ask that they continue to talk on the phone with her for now.

SCRIPT 2 Concept/Storyboard: Two kids/youths/teens are playing video games and are speaking to each other over their headsets or phone/text each other saying that it would be more fun if they hung out together instead of alone at home. One then reminds the other how important it is to stay home and stay safe not only for themselves but their elders in their community.

SCRIPT 3 Concept/Storyboard: A parent/ caregiver is no longer doing a very good job of hand washing and wearing their masks properly. The child/youth/teen kindly reminds them how important it is to stay safe by properly washing their hands giving them a step-by-step instruction on how to and shows them how to properly wear a mask and how far apart 6 feet is.

Following April 23, 2021, the videos submitted will be considered by members of the First Nations Pandemic Response Coordination Team (PRCT) to select the first, second and third place videos.
