CPR Video Contest 2017: Grace Yip (Second Place)
During November 2017, York Region Paramedic Services ran a CPR Video Contest with the purpose of encouraging students to use their creativity and skills to produce a video that would encourage their peers to learn hands-only CPR. This was the first year York Region Paramedic Services ran the contest and a variety of video submissions were received from Grade 7 to 12 students from across York Region schools. For more information on how to perform hands-only CPR and York Region Paramedic Services’ AED registry, please visit york.ca/CPR.
This video was submitted by Grace Yip from Bur Oak Secondary School and received the second place prize.
Grace’s Video Description:
Through this campaign, I’ve come to the shocking realization of how often cardiac arrest actually occurs. This project has enlightened me on how easy and inexpensive it is to learn CPR, along with the unbelievable results that could potentially come with it. After learning this, I wanted to help spread awareness doing what I’m most confident in; graphics and animation. Keeping in mind that images and videos help people retain information significantly, I opted for a simple yet very educational animation. My goal was to show some of the most shocking statistics that many people aren’t aware of and end the video with how anyone can learn how to perform CPR. Knowing that even one person’s life could be changed after viewing this video, I wanted to remind people of all ages that: “not all heroes wear capes”.
