​​​​Grand Prize Winner: Christina Liggitt (@chr​istinaliggitt96 on Instagram)​

​The winners each received a $100 VISA gift card and a cultural prize for sharing how they stay well, especially during COVID-19. They were also entered in the grand prize draw, which included a $500 VISA gift card and some special prizes from the Tsow-Tun Le Lum Society, which provides confidential outreach services such as counselling, cultural supports and personal wellness programs.

The campaign also featured three new Indigenous youth profiles: Jordanna Roesler of the Dene First Nation, Taylor Ackerman of the Cowichan Tribes and Adam Gauthier of the Tla'amin First Nation, who is also a youth coordinator for the Vancouver Island region at the FNHA. Their stories aim to inspire and support youth to stay mentally, physically and spiritually well during the pandemic with messages, advice, personal videos and youth resources.
