It’s On Us Video Contest

We’ve spent some time thinking about sexual assault awareness this year and for your block break between blocks 2 & 3, I want to challenge you to take part in the national “It’s On Us” campaign.  It’s On Us is about asking for consent, it’s on us to intervene; to support survivors; to create a culture of respect.

At Cornell, we think this is especially important and we’ll be asking you to join the campaign throughout second block.  During 4th week, we’ll unveil a couple of videos we are working on to support the campaign, but we think you probably have some creative ideas as well.

The Sunday before Block 3 begins, you’ll need to upload your video to google drive and share it with Gwen Schimek, Dean of Students.  In the meantime, think about your It’s On Us messages.  First place group gets a meal cooked by Gwen.  Second place gets dessert or snacks cooked by Gwen.


  • Create a video promoting the It’s On Us campaign. Research statistics, information, and other items related to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual harassment and write a script, find some actors, and cut it all together.
  • Maximum length: 60 seconds
  • Deadline for submission: 8:00 p.m. October 30
  • Questions? Contact gschimek
