PDFNJ Wants to Hear Your Song! Your Voice!

The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey’s (PDFNJ) Your Song! Your Voice! Shout Down Drugs New Jersey music and songwriting competition is back from its 19th year!  Teenagers who are into making music, won’t want to miss this opportunity to have their songs heard by tens of thousands of people.

Each year, PDFNJ’s Your Song! Your Voice! competition challenges high school students from across the state to create original music with substance use prevention messages.  It is a great opportunity for today’s youth to not only get exposure for their music but also become peer leaders by creating positive messages about substance use prevention that can have a positive impact on people’s lives.

The competition is open to all music genres or any musical style. It does not matter what kind of music you might be into; jazz, rock, reggae, R & B and more.  Entries will be accepted through Sunday, March 5, 2023.

A panel of judges will select a group of finalists whose songs will be showcased in the 19th annual virtual Prevention Concert on April 26, 2023, and the top three winners will share up to $10,000 in prizes. For more information and rules on how to enter, please click here.

I also want to remind you to register for the next Knock Out Opioid Abuse Learning Series Webinar, “Saving Lives – Harm Reduction and the Opioid Crisis”, at 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 10th.  Experts will discuss harm reduction methods and the impact they have had in reducing deaths during the opioid epidemic.
