Back in August, a group called “Young Invincibles” teamed up with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to host an online video contest to promote Obamacare, which sounds about as terrible of an idea as the videos actually turned out.

Actor Kal Penn announced the ‘Healthy Young America’ video contest winners in a Google hangout on Monday, naming three winners in the following categories: “You are Not invincible,” “Perform a song,” and “Make an animation.”

Young Invincibles’ announcement touted a prize pool worth up to $30,000 for more than 100 prizes. According to the Washington Examiner, First Place took home $3,000, while the Second and Third Place winners received $2,500, and the Grand Prize winner earned $2,000.

Without further ado, I present just some of the winning videos:

Grand prize winner, “Forget About the Price Tag”

“You are Not Invincible” Category Winner

“Animation” Winner

I don’t even know, but this apparently won something, too:

If you haven’t had enough, the Washington Examiner has more here.
