Say Cheese!

Me? Take a selfie?

Yep. In case you haven’t heard, it’s more than teenagers and impossibly cool hipsters flipping their smart phones around to take selfies. And, bonus points, this selfie could win you a one year family membership to the YMCA.

Here’s how it works! Submit your healthy selfie between 9/1 and 9/15, then come back and vote on your favorite from 9/16 to 9/19. Then, on Healthy Selfie Day, Friday, September 20th, we’ll announce our two winners. Got questions? We’ve got answers!

What’s a Healthy Selfie?

So what makes a selfie a healthy selfie? We’re pretty flexible. Cooking with your kids, walking your dog, swimming, hiking, gardening, biking, yoga, sports… Heck, even mowing the yard works! And what about mental wellbeing? Quality time with friends and family, meditation, learning a new skill… those can be used for healthy selfies too.

What’s not a healthy selfie? You could probably figure that out yourself, but a couple of examples are: chowing down on a cheeseburger; binge watching on the couch; just looking at the camera with a cute filter. None of these are healthy selfies.

How do I submit my selfie? 

You can email it to or post it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #healthyselfie and #healthywestorange. If you post it on social media be sure the post is public and to tag Healthy West Orange so we can see it.

What’s the deadline? 

Your entry must be received before 11:59 pm on Thursday, September 15.

Is there a limit? 

We encourage you to take as many healthy selfies as you want, but for the contest it’s three selfies per individual. So pick your best!

How will my selfie be used? 

When you submit a selfie, you’re agreeing to let us use it for marketing purposes. For instance, you might see your selfie in the Windermere Observer, West Orange Times, on our social media channels, or the local YMCAs. On Healthy Selfie Day (September 20) the two winners will be featured on the website, Healthy West Orange website, and more places around town.

How are you judging the selfies? 

First, we’re looking for fun, healthy images. Second, we’re looking for creativity. But remember, while we choose the semifinalists, YOU choose the winner! Check back here to VOTE!

When is the winner announced?

The winners will be announced on Healthy Selfie Day, September 20, 2019 at 9:00 am.

How do I pick up my prize?  

We’ll notify you through social media or email if you’re the winner. You should pick up your prize in person, weekdays, between the hours of 9 am – 5 pm, at the Healthy West Orange office at Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital, 10000 W. Colonial Drive, Ste. 281, Ocoee.
