We have decided to donate the funds raised on this page to the Red Cross who are working in Samoa to help people affected by the measles outbreak there.

***

We want to raise money for prizes to encourage entries to a competition to promote vaccine information. The Force Field Film Challenge is a short film competition for Primary and Intermediate schools.

To enter, kids will need to create an attention grabbing video (of up to 3 minutes) showing us how the invisible force field of herd immunity through vaccination works, and agree to let us share their video with the world.

Kids can be as creative as they like, and can use costumes, puppets or animation - the sky's the limit!

Diseases can spread quickly, and can be deadly so we’d like to use the films submitted to spread this important information about herd immunity far and wide – they could change someone’s mind, and save a life!

About us

The NZ Skeptics Society is a non-profit body that exists to promote critical thinking. Where the potential for harm exists – whether physical, mental, emotional or economic – Skeptics consider it unethical to leave these claims unchallenged.
