Destiny Truitt, a sophomore at Camden's Woodrow Wilson High School, is a finalist in the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) Shout Down Drugs competition.

Truitt is one of 38 students who will perform original music and lyrics at the 11th Annual New Jersey Shouts Down Drugs concert. Her original song, "Say No to Drugs" was selected as one of the best out of hundreds of entries submitted from high school students across New Jersey.

Now in its 11th year, the New Jersey Shout Down Drugs music competition challenges high school students to create original music with lyrics that contain powerful peer-to-peer substance abuse prevention messages. Destiny and the other finalists will perform at final competition at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark Friday.

According to PDFNJ Executive Director Angelo Valente, the finalists are selected through an online vote and judging panel and represent 14 New Jersey counties. All of the finalists will compete for $10,000 in music contracts to perform their winning song at PDFNJ statewide events.
