What is Protect Me With 3+?
Adolescent vaccinations can prevent disease and save lives.
Protect Me With 3+ is an annual poster and video contest, and a collaboration between The Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey and the New Jersey Department of Health. We believe your health is worth a shot.
Targeting youth in middle and high schools, the contest aims to raise awareness about the importance of adolescent immunizations among preteens, teenagers and parents, and increase vaccination rates for several important vaccines:
- Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap)
- Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
- Meningococcal Conjugate
The top three posters and videos win awesome prizes, and the chance for your work to be seen by the public at statewide immunization awareness activities. The top five finalists for each category will also be posted on our website during the voting period.
We have created informational flyers highlighting all of the contest guidelines:
- If you are a middle school student (grades 5-8), please use this flyer.
- If you are a high school student (grades 9-12), please use this flyer.
*High school students may submit in both the poster and video categories, but may only be a finalist in one category.
Educators throughout New Jersey are encouraged to promote the Protect Me With 3+ contest as a class project—a prize for the classroom with the most eligible submissions in each of the poster and video categories will also be awarded.
