Say Cheese!

Me? Take a selfie?

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

So how’s it work? Glad you asked.

What’s a Healthy Selfie?

What makes something a healthy selfie? We’re pretty flexible.  Swimming. Running. Walking. Biking. Hiking. Yoga. Sports. Heck, even mowing the yard in Florida is a great way to burn calories. We’d love to see what you’re eating, too. And we’ll also consider activities that are good for your mental wellbeing as healthy. That includes quality time with friends and family, downtime relaxing, learning a new skill, etc.

What’s not a healthy selfie? You could probably figure that out yourself. But by way of example: 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 to tag Healthy West Orange so we can see it.

What’s the deadline? 

Your entry must be received before 11:59 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 19.

Is there a limit? 

Three selfies per individual.

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 (Sept. 21) the two winners will be featured on the website, this website, and more places around town.

How are you judging the selfies? 

First, it should be a healthy selfie. (See above) Second, we’re looking for creativity. Show us the love, and we’ll take it from there.

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 9-5 pm, at the Healthy West Orange office at Orlando-Health Health Central Hospital.

Good luck!

*Please note: Winners should be residents of the West Orange Healthcare District and living in the following zip codes: 32703; 32808; 32809; 32810; 32818; 32819; 32821; 32830; 32835; 32836; 34734; 34761; 34786; 34787. If you are a finalist, we will require an address.
