The City of Eugene sought submissions from people ages 14-30 living in Lane County for Stop the Spread, a community COVID-19 Messaging Contest geared toward young adults. Stop the Spread encouraged anyone ages 14-30 to submit visual (graphic design or illustrative) or video content (no longer than 30-seconds) in English or Spanish that emphasizes to their peers the importance of preventing the spread of COVID-19.
The City received 67 entries in total, and the winners are:
- Graphic (Ages 14-18): Jailyn Arleth Becerra-Brigido
- Graphic (Ages 19-22): Izabella Dentler
- Graphic (Ages 23-30): Erin Tomb
- Video (Ages 14-18): Bennett Krupka
- Video (Ages 19-22): Patrick Riley
- Video (Ages 23-30): Kristen Marsters

Winners were selected by a panel of judges and a public vote. All winning entries can be viewed on the Stop the Spread website; additionally, all winning entries will be available for download starting next week through the contest website. Anyone can use this content to help message the importance of curbing the spread of COVID-19.
“THANK YOU to all 67 individuals and teams who submitted entries to this contest. We appreciate your creativity and commitment to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to sharing these messages far and wide,” says Sarah-Kate Sharkey, Public Information Officer with the City of Eugene.
