Due February 12th, 2019 - Along with a balanced diet and regular exercise, sleep is one of the pillars of a healthy lifestyle. Getting the sleep that your body needs is essential for your health, well-being and mood. Sleep also works for you so that you can perform your best at school. When you get good sleep, your memory is sharper and you think more clearly and creatively. Sleep also energizes you for peak performance in sports, making you faster, stronger and more accurate. Finally, sleep keeps you safe by helping you to avoid motor vehicle accidents caused by drowsy driving. Sleep works for you!

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that teens between 13 and 18 years of age should sleep 8 to 10 hours per night on a regular basis to promote optimal health. However, CDC data show that 73% of U.S. high school students report sleeping fewer than 8 hours on an average school night. These students are suffering from chronic sleep restriction, which can have a negative impact on their physical and mental health, academic and athletic performance, and mood. Chronic sleep loss also can influence teens’ decision-making, putting personal and public safety at risk.

To enter, create a video motivating teens to prioritize the importance of sleep in their lives.

Factors that can prevent teens from getting sufficient sleep include social media use, screen-based media usage at night, late-night binge-watching and early school start times.

Entries should be between 30 seconds and 2 minutes in length.
