Change your hometown through the lens of a camera!
Have you ever seen anything that worries you about the health or safety of your county? The I-HOPE Photovoice Project gives youth (grades 5-12) the opportunity to influence community leaders and lawmakers with the original photos they take depicting the health of their community, both its strengths and weaknesses. This is your chance to share what you value and what you'd like to see improve by snapping photos from your point of view.
Only one (1) photo may be uploaded per submission. For additional photos, please submit additional forms. Before uploading, make sure no people in the photo can be identified and that the photo does not include other identifiers such as a private house number or license plate. We cannot accept the photo until you blur out these identifiers (faces, numbers, etc.). Public places are acceptable.
The following information will be required for each photo submitted:
- County: Indiana County in which the photo was taken.
- Source: Your confirmation that you are the person who took the photo. We cannot accept internet or other digitally-sourced photos for this project.
- Caption: Tell us about the image with a photo caption of no more than three sentences.
- Message: What message or solution would you like to share with community leaders by sharing this photo?
You are also welcome to submit your name, age, and additional information about you and your county, but this optional.
Photovoice is a project managed by the I-HOPE initiative at Purdue University's Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering. I-HOPE aims to reduce health disparities for better health outcomes. We support communities with innovative tools for building collaboration, hearing the voice of the community, and guiding participants to action.
