Community Messaging… Say it Loud!

Hello Michigander,

Happy New Year!

I want to share an exciting opportunity called “Take the Mic,” a contest celebrating the everyday heroes in our community! Launched by Michigan Communities Conquering COVID (MI-CCC), Take the Mic wants to showcase your creativity to help save lives this winter.

  • Submit messages and media to inspire and support people in your community and work together to conquer COVID-19.
  • 2 categories for entries: Written Word or any Other Media.
  • Get creative! Take the Mic is looking for everything from poetry to graphic design to dances – whatever you think will have an impact on your community.
  • You can submit entries through January 25, 2021.
  • Get a $10 Visa gift card for your first entry in each category. Submit as many times as you want!
  • Judges will choose the top entries from each category, then the community will vote for the winners. The 1st place winners will receive $500!
  • Must be 18 or older to enter.

This is a great time to focus on what really matters. The choices and actions of every single person can change the course of the COVID-19 pandemic in Michigan.

Go to to learn more and submit your entries!

Please share with your staff, students, partners, and listserv.

Thanks so much for your time,
