The contest is for substance abuse prevention messages with a “Winter Holiday” theme. The winning
billboard will be displayed during the months of November and December 2021.
The messages displayed on the billboards must be one that informs, persuades, or states facts about substance abuse. It can be about nicotine/tobacco/vaping, alcohol, and/or prescription drug abuse or illegal drug use and how it is harmful to youth.
Students are encouraged to look up facts and statistics and gain knowledge of why these substances are
harmful to youth, they’re encouraged to be creative and think of a message that would reach the youth but are not to use scare tactics.
