For the third year, Ready Navy has issued a zombie challenge to the kids of Navy and Marine Corps families.This year’s challenge is to create a comic strip or, for those wanting a bigger challenge, to create a short YouTube-type video.
“Kids ask questions. They think about and often worry about what they should do in an emergency,” said Jeff Sanford, N37 emergency management.
“The yearly challenges provide an opportunity for these kids to talk with their parents about hazards Navy families face and unleash their creative brains to prepare for a zombie apocalypse that will ultimately prepare them for any hazard,” Sanford explained.
To accept the 2014 Zombie Challenge kids are asked to:
* Create a comic strip showing how they would be ready if a zombie apocalypse happens. Entry forms are available on the Ready Navy website and should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Oct. 31.
* Comic strips must show how they would be informed about the zombies, where they would go, what they would do, and what they would take.
For those wanting a bigger challenge, kids are asked to create a video of their comic strip or other zombie preparedness plans.
Winning entries will be highlighted on the Ready Navy website, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (if video entry).
