Judges Needed for Healthi4U

Who can judge this competition?
Any University of Utah employee can judge the Healthi4U competition videos.

What’s the time commitment?
Judges will review 3-5 videos from November 7-14. Videos are 1-3 minutes in length, so the entire judging process will take about an hour. Judges will use an online rubric to judge each video on three criteria: messaging, creativity, and production. Additionally, all judges are invited to attend the red-carpet Capstone event on Thursday, November 16, 5-7pm.

Who do I contact?
Become a judge by contacting Anita at Anita.Leopardi@health.utah.edu

What is Healthi4U?
Healthi4U is an annual competition for interdisciplinary teams of students at the University of Utah to create short health-related videos. The goal of Healthi4U is to create engaging and informative videos related to health. You can learn more about the competition by self-enrolling at: https://utah.instructure.com/enroll/J3YFGF
