Thanks for participating in this year’s Protect Me With 3+ contest! The top five finalists from each category will be selected for public voting and announced in March. Voting will begin Monday, March 25, 2019 and end on Sunday April 7, 2019 at 11:59 PM.

What is Protect Me With 3+?

Adolescent vaccinations can prevent disease and save lives.

Protect Me With 3+ is an annual poster and video contest, and a collaboration between The Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey and the New Jersey Department of Health. We believe your health is worth a shot.

Targeting youth in middle and high schools, the contest aims to raise awareness about the importance of adolescent immunizations among preteens, teenagers and parents, and increase vaccination rates for several important vaccines:

  • Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap)
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Meningococcal Conjugate
  • Flu


The top three posters and videos win awesome prizes, and the chance for your work to be seen by the public at statewide immunization awareness activities. The top five finalists for each category will also be posted on our website during the voting period.


  • If you are a middle school student (grades 5-8), please use this flyer.
  • If you are a high school student (grades 9-12), please use this flyer.


Educators throughout New Jersey are encouraged to promote the Protect Me With 3+ contest as a class project—a prize for the classroom with the most eligible submissions in each of the poster and video categories will also be awarded.
