Call for young people’s contributions for Bedfordshire and Luton ChatHealth competition

by Emily Loud | Mar 17, 2020

EXTENDED DEADLINE - now 11 May 2020

Are you aged 11-19 years and have a passion for design? Your local NHS needs you to help create our new promotional materials!

ChatHealth is a health and wellbeing service for 11-19 year olds, which allows them to text the school nursing team for help and advice, and Luton and Bedfordshire Community Services are calling for young people’s help and skills to design our new ChatHealth poster.

The winning entry will work with our communications team to finalise their design and get to see their poster appear all over the county, as well as win a competition prize of £50 vouchers (of your choice).

The poster needs to be clear, bright, and eye catching and convey the following key information:

  • The ChatHealth contact number: 07507 331450 for Bedfordshire or 07520 616070 for Luton
  • That you will be texting your school nurse
  • That it is for young people
  • That it is confidential
  • Some examples of the areas of support, for example: healthy relationships, healthy lifestyles, emotional wellbeing, sexual health, smoking, drugs, alcohol, and bullying 

You can use shapes/symbols/imagery and it can be hand designed on paper (and scanned in) or in digital format. Please email your competition entry, along with your Name and School/College to ccs.communications@nhs.net by closing date 11 MAY 2020. The winning entry will be notified via email and their school on the 1st June 2020. 

Please also share and display the Chathealth competition poster at school or any other relevant locations for young people. 

Here are some examples of ChatHealth posters that have been used elsewhere in the country that can help inspire you:
