Do you have what it takes to go national?

Every year, the USAID Center for International Disaster Information hosts a nationwide, annual contest in which students are asked to harness their creativity to produce a Public Service Announcement (PSA) that demonstrates why cash donations are the best way to support international disaster relief.

We encourage contestants to submit entries that illustrate how to donate responsibly when supporting relief efforts overseas. Check out our contest rules and guidelines, along with answers to some frequently asked questions.

Winning broadcast PSAs have aired during episodes of Family Guy, The World Series, The Bachelor, NFL Football, The Big Bang Theory, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, among others. Winning print and digital image PSAs have been featured in Rolling Stone, Forbes, Fast Company, Essence, The New York Post, Outdoor Photography, Scientific American, The Washington Times, The Huffington Post, and El Diario.
