Students Urged to Spread Message About Drug Abuse

Attorney General Jack Conway

Kentucky students are being recruited to spread the message about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

State Attorney General Jack Conway on Monday joined in announcing the start of a public service announcement contest for middle and high school students. The competition is part of an effort to warn youngsters about prescription abuse.
  
As part of the competition, Kentucky students will produce a 30-second video showing the perils of prescription drug abuse.

The first-place winner will receive an Apple iPad. The runner-up will receive a $100 Amazon.com gift card.

The deadline for submitting a video is Dec. 6. Winners will be announced a week later.

Students wanting to find out how to submit a PSA for consideration can visit the attorney general's prescription drug abuse prevention page.
