The Navy is holding a contest, asking its sailors to promote the message of sexual assault prevention and awareness through video.

The contest, according to a Navy news release, is part of the Navy's Sexual Assault Awareness Month:

The goal of the contest is to promote <a href="">awareness of SAPR</a> in the Navy, encouraging bystander intervention among viewers, and advocating victim assistance and support. Submissions should incorporate the Department of Defense and Navy Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) themes, "We own it...We'll solve it...Together" and "Courage."

Sailors can make the video on their own, or team up to create a group video. Either way, the end result should incorporate one or more of the following themes:

-Education and awareness

-Prevention and intervention

-Victim advocacy and resiliency



Active duty, reserve, and full-time-support sailors are all eligible to enter the contest. Budding filmmakers can submit their entries by snail mail, or go high-tech and upload their finished work to the FTP site.

The deadline to submit is April 19.
