Art Speaks When Words Fail

Media $500 Contests engage students in the art of prevention

Art, Music, Video, and Writing contests challenge students to illuminate the risks of teen substance use. The contests and award ceremonies inspire them to enjoy life without the use of alcohol or other drugs, which mimic the naturally-occurring brain chemicals that produce joy and cause chemical dependency. Individuals, foundations and businesses sponsor the awards as a demonstration of their commitment to maintaining healthy environments where youth can develop into responsible, well-adjusted adults.
