Helping to protect kiwi kids and all our whanau, with vaccination and herd immunity awareness.

Main image

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!

Use of funds

The winning school entry gets $5K, and the 5 runners-up schools each get $1K. Schools can spend as the school would like. If the full amount isn't reached, the prizes will be adjusted accordingly.

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.

“I am fully in support of this! What a brilliant way to introduce our young people to building critical thinking skills and embracing sound science. I will be contacting my son's principal personally to encourage his school's participation in this fantastic competition. Well done, team.”
“What a fantastic initiative!”
“Let's see kids get creative and hopefully learn a bit about infections and prevention.”
“This is a great initiative that we should all get behind. It could make a difference to the whole community and bring awareness and understanding of a simple idea with complex outcomes. When we all do our part, everybody wins.”
“I can't wait to see what the kids come up with! With a Measles outbreak in CHCH at the moment, and more all over the world, this is a timely cause. Good luck!”
“Teaching children about herd immunity is an important objective.”
“Very worth cause - definitely need to get kids interested and knowledgeable about vaccination.”
