GA High School Drug Abuse Prevention Contest


"We're not going to take it!" That's what Georgia Attorney General, Sam Olens, and several other organizations want high school students to say when offered prescription drugs, not intended for their use.

They're encouraging all high school students in the state to enter a drug abuse prevention contest.
Students interested should submit a 30 second video encouraging their peers to reject prescription drug abuse. The video should be original, created by students, and should promote awareness and prevention.

The contest runs from September 15, 2014 to October 31, 2014. The first place winner will receive an iPad.

For more information on the contest visit the Georgia Attorney General's Office webpage at:
