Random Draws

#MylesAheadSummerCamp winners will be selected through a weekly random draw by Myles Ahead, Advancing Child and Youth Mental Health, from all eligible entries received for each week. Entrants are encouraged to participate as many times as they like, and each video with the hashtag #MylesAheadSummerCamp will be eligible to win a prize. Chances of winning increase with more video posts!

Prize winners or their caregivers (if the prize winner is a minor)  will be contacted via the social media through which the video was submitted. Prize winners will be asked to participate in a virtual interview that will be shared on social media and the Myles Ahead website (with parental consent for minors). Prize winners will be asked to explain their choice of activity for the video submission and talk about how the activity makes them feel good/promotes their well-being. There are logistical considerations for timing with the video interviews, and winners will be required to respond to the request for interview within 48 hours to be showcased that week.  Responses received within 2 weeks of each prize draw may  be considered for the following week interview.  Prize winners must contact Myles Ahead before August 31, 2020 in order to receive their prize.
