Video Competition Is Open
Did you know that only half of Australians know how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)!
Greg Page, the original yellow Wiggle, had a cardiac arrest and received lifesaving CPR!
The Australian Resuscitation Council needs your help to achieve our goal to have ALL Australians know how to respond to someone who has had a cardiac arrest.
This year we are running a competition in which you will not only learn but also teach CPR!
3. Get creative and make a fun 60-second video that could be used to teach your family, your class, your school…basically anyone….how to correctly perform CPR including the key messages in the box below. Individual and team entries are welcome.
4. Use your video to teach others and log how many people you teach. Remember to respect your local social distancing rules and ask your parents or legal guardian before uploading videos to social media (hash tags #ARC_CPRComp #WorldRestartAHeart).
5. To go into the running to win a $500 sports store voucher ask your parent or legal guardian to read the T&Cs and upload your 60-second video to this link between September 20th and October 3rd 2020. We will send all entrants a link to log how many people you taught before 12pm October 16th.
6. Check out the Australian Resuscitation Council’s (ARC) Facebook page at 5pm AEST on Restart-a-Heart day October 16th to see how many people you helped train and watch Greg Page announce and show the winning entries. All entries will receive a Certificate of Participation from the ARC.
