Announcing the Computer Animation Student Competition
With a first place prize of $250! Entry deadline is December 30, 2014!
NAMIsa is holding a computer animation competition to produce a TV commercial (30 second and 60 second versions) to promote mental health awareness, reduce stigma and to inform the public about NAMI services and support available (at no charge) in our community.
Concept: Lessons Learned from Geese.
This competition is an invaluable opportunity for all participants. The project will provide real world experience working within a client’s parameters to develop the animated artwork; feedback can be provided upon request throughout the process.
In addition to the cash prize, NAMI will air the winning commercial on network television in 2015, a great way to build your resume!
The contest is open to individual students or classes at the High School or College level. Contest finalists will be chosen by NAMI, the winner will be announced in February of 2015.

Announcing the NAMI Basics class
Starting on Thursday, September 11 at 6pm to 8:30pm
This course is for parents and caregivers of children who have either a suspected or a diagnosed mental illness. This course is an educational program that explains that a child's mental illness is not the caregiver's fault, that it is a biological illness, and the course is sensitive to the emotional issues faced by family caregivers and others in the family. The course also helps the caregiver to give support and understanding to the child with mental illness.
Registration is a must. Please contact Judi Maikoff, Coordinator, at (520) 622-5582 ext. 110.
