The coalition hosts these yearly competitions to spotlight the adverse effects of underage drinking. Participants can choose from three topics:
- How social media influences teens about underage drinking
- To drink vs. not to drink. What are the effects of alcohol and who influences you?
- How the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to under 21 alcohol use
Each PSA has to be 30 seconds long. The contest is open to middle and high school students with cash prizes between $100 and $1,000 available to the participating schools or organizations. The deadline to submit entries is Friday, March 11 by 4 p.m.
