Communities in Schools to Hold Drug-Free Photo Contest for High School Students

CISPA will hold a photo contest to promote drug prevention through My Voice PA for high school students.

Communities In Schools of Pennsylvania (CISPA), an affiliate of the nation's largest dropout-prevention organization, will hold a photo contest for high school students to promote CISPA’s alcohol, tobacco and drug prevention campaign My Voice PA. CISPA will offer $300 in prize money to the winners of the contest, which will be held from Feb. 1-28.

“Drugs and alcohol play a large role in our school dropout crisis,” said CISPA President and State Director Nathan Mains. “Empowering students to illustrate their drug-free choices can only help strengthen their commitment and go a long way in keeping them on the path to graduate.”

In order to win, students will submit original photos that are a visual representation of why they choose to be drug free. All pictures will be submitted through the My Voice PA Facebook page (Facebook.com/MyVoicePA).

The My Voice PA campaign promotes the theme, “My Life. My Choice.” It presents teens with the idea that they are in control of the path their lives will take, and that a drug free path will lead them to a successful future. For more information about the campaign, visit www.myvoicepa.org.

The winner of the contest will receive $150; second place, $100; third place, $50. CISPA will select winners based on creativity and originality. The contest is open to all Pennsylvania students ages 13 and older in grades eight through 12.
