Nassau County’s fourth annual Drug Alternatives’ Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest is open to high school and college students as part of National Red Ribbon Awareness Campaign activities. This year’s Red Ribbon theme, “YOLO (You Only Live Once) Be Drug Free,” was selected to educate youth to create drug-free communities.
The contest requires students to create a 30 second PSA that provides hope, help and suggests positive alternatives to drug misuse and abuse.
Educational institutions may submit multiple entries, created by an individual or a group of students. Videos should provide links to local resources available for help, such as Nassau County’s 24/7 helpline.
First, second and third place prizes will be awarded for the winning entries in both high school and college level divisions. Each participant will receive a citation, honoring them for their efforts.
The deadline for submissions is Nov. 18 via flash drive. PSAs become the property of Nassau County upon submission and may be reproduced for publication.
To participate, call Paula Pontrelli at 516-227-7038.
