ASMF "Sleep Story" High School Video Contest


ASMF Announces High School Video Contest Winner

The American Sleep Medicine Foundation selected a fun and creative YouTube video about the importance of teens getting proper sleep as the grand-prize winner of the second annual ASMF Sleep Story Video Contest. The video was created by Jack Gentempo, an 11th grader from Norway, Maine.


Launched in April 2013, the ASMF’s Sleep Story Video Contest issued a nationwide creative challenge to high school filmmakers to tell a sleep story to help shine a light on the effects of sleep problems. Submissions were evaluated by a panel of sleep medicine physicians and researchers and judged based on appropriateness of message, originality, creativity and the overall quality of the video.
