The Randolph County Family Resource Network and America's Promise Coalition are hosting a video competition for Randolph County youth.
The organizations want area middle and high school students to create a 1- or 2-minute video showing how or why they are above the influence of drugs.
The contest is part of a full week of awareness activities that will take place the week of Oct. 8 as part of the National Above the Influence Day, which is sponsored by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy's ATI Day.
Entries will be judged upon originality and quality of the message. Two winners will be selected by members of the Randolph County America's Promise Coalition and National Youth Leadership Team. First prize will be $100 cash, and the video will be featured on various media outlets across the county and during the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy's ATI Day event Oct. 18. Second prize will be $50 cash.
All entries must be produced as a video in digital format, and they must focus on why the students are above the influence of drugs. Entries must have a 10-second full screen image showing the participant's names and video title.
The contest is open to all Randolph County students. Entries must be submitted by Oct. 10 via the Randolph County Family Resource Network Facebook page. More information about the contest is available by calling the Randolph County Family Resource Network at 304-636-4454.
