The Illinois Radon Video Contest hopes to raise awareness about the dangers of radon gas. Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas that causes lung cancer. As half of Illinois counties are considered at high risk, this contest aims to provide an opportunity for educating Illinois youth and the general public. This statewide Radon Video Contest increases awareness by asking Illinois high school students and classes to create a PSA/commercial style video encouraging Illinois residents to test their homes.
The winning video may appear in local movie theaters on the big screen!
