High School Students Use their Voices to Sing & Promote Prevention - Your Song! Your Voice!

The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey’s (PDFNJ) Your Song! Your Voice! Shout Down Drugs high school music and songwriting competition is back for its 20th year!  The deadline is March 24th. Teenagers who are into making music won’t want to miss this opportunity to have their songs heard by tens of thousands of people and promote their music during the online voting at ShoutDownDrugs.com. Winners of the competition sign an actual music contract with PDFNJ that requires them to perform several times throughout the state after the competition. The deadline to submit your original music is March 24th.

Each year, PDFNJ’s Your Song! Your Voice! competition challenges high school students from across the state to create original music with their own unique substance use prevention message. This is one of my favorite programs because, in addition to being a great opportunity for today’s youth to get exposure for their music, it also makes them into peer leaders as they create positive messages that can help other teens make healthy decisions about whether or not to experiment with alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs. Now more than ever, this message needs to be heard by our kids, and there is no better way for them to hear it than from other teenagers. Please make a concerted effort to get the word out about the contest to the high school students in your community, and just a another reminder, the deadline is March 24th.  Contest details can be found at ShoutDownDrugs.com or by contacting Diane Higgins, PDFNJ’s School-Based & Educational Programs Coordinator (diane@drugfreenj.org 973-275-7985).
