ANNAPOLIS, Maryland--The Organization for Safety and Asepsis Procedures has announced the first winners for its I See IC Contest for "YouTube" style video clips and still photos that promote infection control in the operatory.
Winners for August were Mike and Leslie Canham for "The Beauty Pageant for Gloves" (video category) and the Dental Assisting Class of Santa Rosa Junior College for "The IC (NOT!) Collection" (still photo category).
Winners won cash to select their own camcorder (video winner) and camera (photo category). To view past winners, vote on current entries, or enter the contest, go to OSAP.
The I See IC contest continues through the end of the year, with prizes for each category awarded monthly. At year-end a Grand Prize winner will be selected. To enter the contest, participants create a short video clip or still photo that either captures good infection control procedures in action or unmasks the hazards of poor technique.
A link on the OSAP Web site allows entrants to upload their submissions. Contest rules and criteria for acceptable entries are posted on the Web site. There is no charge to enter. Anyone can vote for a favorite entry during designated voting periods.
September winners will receive an iPod nano. Sponsors of the I See IC Contest include A-dec, Biotrol, Crosstex, DUX Dental, Nitram, PDI, SciCan, Septodont, Sullivan-Schein, and Sultan Healthcare.
