Video submission contest announced

PORTSMOUTH In advance of the opening of SOMC Pediatric Associates, Southern Ohio Medical Center is inviting parents to have their children potentially star in a series of online commercials promoting the service.

To enter, parents should record and submit a video of their child answering two simple questions:

“Why are you excited about the opening of SOMC Pediatric Associates?”

“Why should you be featured in a video promoting SOMC’s new pediatric facility?”

The best videos will be posted to SOMC’s Facebook fan page and voted on by SOMC’s fans. Those that receive the most votes will earn the opportunity to star in a series of upcoming videos promoting SOMC Pediatric Associates.

Each video should feature only one child and be no longer than 60 seconds in length. Children featured must be between 3 and 12. Videos must be emailed to CommunityRelations@somc.org by noon on July 12.

 All submissions will be reviewed and a panel will select the finalists, which will be posted to Southern Ohio Medical Center’s Facebook fan page. Fans of SOMC will then be able to vote for their favorite contestant by either liking or sharing the video. Shares must be “public” in order to be counted.

For more information, call SOMC Community Relations at (740) 356-2794 or “like” SOMC on Facebook at facebook.com/SouthernOhioMedicalCenter.
