Deadline to Submit Videos is Oct. 10
Las Vegas, NV – Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez
Masto wants to remind middle and high school students they have until Friday,
Oct. 10 to submit video entries for the state’s prescription drug abuse
“Students will be helping fight against a growing and sometimes tragic drug
trend occurring within their peer groups,” said Masto. “There is still
time to participate and we hope that parents, educators and community members
can help spread the word.”
The goal of the contest is to use the winning videos to promote awareness of
the dangers of prescription drug abuse amongst Nevada teens. Students are
eligible to participate if they are enrolled in grades six through 12th, or are
youth involved with a community-based team in Nevada. The winning entry
will receive $1,000; while second-place wins $750 and third-place earns $500.
Students have a choice of which video format to choose for their entry: a
30-second uploaded YouTube video, a maximum 6.5 second Vine or 15 second
AG Masto partnered with Governor Sandoval, the Nevada Statewide Coalition
Partnership, Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, Nevada Board of
Pharmacy and Solutions Recovery, Inc. to sponsor this statewide contest.
