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

Main image
  Nationwide

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.

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.

Latest update

The Force Field Film Challenge! - Givealittle  7 September 2019

Hi everyone.

Due to the recent measles outbreaks in Canterbury and Auckland, and the media coverage of the topic, we feel it's time to re-open this fundraising effort.

In the background we have been working hard to secure funding from charitable organisations, but we still have a way to go to reach our goal.

We still need your help.

We hope you will continue to support our mission to launch this national film competition to make "herd immunity" a topic of conversation and motivation for vaccination across New Zealand!
