We're approaching the submission deadline for the MyPlate Fruits and Veggies Video Challenge. If you haven't created a video yet, there's still time! Just 30 seconds of video will put you in the running for great prizes:

  • First Prize: $1500 (3 prizes)
  • Second Prize: $1000 (3 prizes)
  • Popular Choice: $500 (3 prizes)


Before you submit, please be sure your video meets these requirements:

  1. Focus on only ONE tip for adding fruits and veggies to your diet without straining your budget.
  2. Include the phrase "Make half your plate fruits and vegetables."
  3. Direct people to ChooseMyPlate.gov for more information.
  4. Everyone who appears in your video must provide a signed consent form. (The consent forms must include actual signatures — not just typed names.)

(Items 2 and 3 can be text overlays.)

Review the full rules, and don't forget the most important part: have fun with it! Round up your friends and family to be in the video, and encourage others to make one too.

Visit the video gallery to see the entries so far. We can't wait to see your submission!
