2019 Tell Your Heart Story Photo Contest

August 26, 2019

Every story matters. And since a picture is worth 1,000 words, we want you to show us your heart story.

For September’s Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, ANTHC is hosting the Tell Your Heart Story Youth Photo Contest. Alaska Native and American Indian youth up to age 25 are invited to share photos, images and artwork that help tell your story. 

Please submit photos, images or artwork that Tell Your Heart Story along with a brief description (2-3 sentences) on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #TYHS2019 or upload your image HERE by Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m. The top three photos with the most votes will win prizes! First place will win $100 Visa gift card; second will win $75; and third $50.

Here are some examples to help you tell us about your submission(s):

  • These are the places where I feel like I belong.
  • This is an activity that makes me feel good.
  • This is something that inspires me.
  • This is something that gives me hope.
  • This is how I express myself creatively.
  • This is my reason for living.

NOTE: Please do not submit inappropriate or graphic images.

A voting period will take place Oct. 1-11. For more information and full contest entry rules, visit anthc.org/TYHS.
