Submit a 3-minute film to elevate your voice and help adults understand the issues and pressures teens really face.


The prompt for your films is: Mental Health and Sex Ed—what’s the connection?

Wondering what to do with that idea? Think about…

• How the things you learn in sex-ed affect your mental health.

• Or perhaps how not receiving any sex-ed affects your mental health?


Mark your calendars—the submission deadline is March 24, 2024. Our panel of judges will carefully evaluate each entry, and the most outstanding films will be featured in Dallas at the Texas Theatre on April 7, 2024.

Don’t miss your chance to win cash prizes! Healthy Futures of Texas will be awarding 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
