The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has just released a new program for a video promotional contest for Obamacare.

The HHS has teamed up with a group called ‘Young Invincibles’ for a contest that will award $30,000 for over 100 prizes.

“This isn’t your mom’s contest, (sorry mom, though you can try too),” the notice on the group’s website reads.

The team asks budding video editors to assemble videos based on one of three principals that will attract youth to sign up for the program.

“Help get the word out, be a part of the solution, and win some cash!” notes the website.

The team offers prizes based on three different themes to highlight the importance of signing up for Obamacare.

1. You are NOT invincible

2. Perform a song

3. Make an animation

“Your participation in the contest is about more than the opportunity to win money to help pay off those pesky student loans; this is your chance to help your friends and other young people learn about their new health insurance options,” the notice on the Young Invincibles website reads.

HHS Secretary Sebelius also promoted the contest in a statement.

“Soon the Health Insurance Marketplace will give uninsured young people the opportunity to enroll in affordable health insurance, and the Healthy Young America video contest will help them tell their stories to other young people,” she wrote.
