Delaware students in grades 6 through 12 can submit 30-second videos for a chance to win $1,000 and co-direct a 30-second video commercial on healthy lifestyles for 12- to 18-year-olds. The dead- line for submissions is Monday, March 15. As a direct result of takin on the challenge, Patrick Q.uinn, a graduate of Wilmington Friends School and previous video con- test winner, got a head start on pursuing his career Quinn's winning submission, "Couch Busters," a parody of the 1980s movie "Ghost Busters," not only provided him with the op- portunity to co-direct the 30-sec- ond spot, but it also gave him firsthand work experience. He said the opportunity helped him get accepted to the college of his choice. "Even if being a producer is not what you aspire to be, the Get Up and Do Somethingvideo contest is a fun way to be cre- ative and help your peers get ac- tive in making healthy lifestyle choices," said Dr. Michael Peter- Renowned sound healer to give workshop Feb. 27 The Wellness Community will offer InfmiteOM: ThE Healing Power of Sound at 10 am., Satur- day, Feb. 27. Michael Gryffyn, certified member of the Ameri- can Sound Healers Association, will present the workshop that will show how InfmiteOM uses sound to restore the natural vi- brations of the body to create balance and alignment in the physical body and in the body's energy centers. Sound healing is a vibrational therapy used to rid individuals of dis-ease and dis-harmony. While the use of sound and music for healing is ancient and can be found in many spiritual and sa- cred traditions, sound healing is a relatively new modality in the complimentary healing arts. "I believe we are all partners in our own cures. Sound healing is an interactive exploration that focuses on awakening our abili- ties as humans to heal," said Gryff who has stru#ed with multiple scelerosis for four years and is currently lesion free. "My doctors say I am an anomaly, but I attribute my healing to my doc- tors, my wellness team and to my own personal efforts all working together as co-creators of my health." Gryffyn will explore ways sound healing can specifically benefit cancer patients and sur- vivors. The Wellness Communi- ty-Delaware is located in Suite 312, of the Medical Arts Building on Beebe's Route 24 campus.

"Obesity and sedentary lifestyles are having a profound impact on the health of our youths," said Michelle Eichinger, physical-activity program ad- ministrator at the Delaware Divi- sion of Public Health. According to 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Sur- vey data, almost one-third of Delaware high school students are either overweight or obese, and only one in every three stu- dents meets recommended lev- els of daily activity. Eichinger said Delaware ranks as the 16th most obese and over- weight state in the nation for children, according to Trust for America's Health. "The impact on the health, academics and fu- ture lives of our students is being compromised by lifestyles that neglect physical activity and healthy nutrition." The Contest encourages stu- dents to get involved with the campaign, vote for their favorite videos, promote healthy behav- iors and help address the grow- ing health crisis among youths.
