2013 PSA winner announcement!
Drug Free Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs are launching, for the 6th year, a statewide contest designed to find highly creative middle and high school students. The Sound Off: Pennsylvania’s Drug Prevention Television (PSA) Contest & T-shirt graphics contest will provide an opportunity for youth to send a positive message to their peers and communities that drugs and alcohol do not have to be part of their activities.
The contest is open to all public, private and home-educated Pennsylvania students in grades 6-12. If necessary, the winning team will professionally produce the PSA that will be aired on television throughout the state. The winning T-shirt design will be available to the winning schools. In addition, the winning teams will have their PSA unveiled at their school during an assembly.
Drug Free Pennsylvania has programs available that provide lessons to help students and adults become more familiar with the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. The programs also teach students to become critical consumers of the media. The PSA contest is a natural outgrowth of these courses of study; however, participation in the contest is not exclusive to the students who currently participate in one of these programs.
Guidelines and registration forms are available at: http://medialiteracypa.org/psa-contest/ If you have any questions about the contest, please contact the Drug Free Pennsylvania at 717-232-0300 or e-mail: psacontest@dr[email protected]
Thank you for your effort to help us reduce substance abuse in our Pennsylvania communities.
