A county-wide challenge invites youth to help raise awareness about opioid overdoses and the dangers of counterfeit and illicit opioids using their video and art skills.
The Scoop from You(th) Challenge will accept submissions from San Diegans from May 9 through July 11, sponsored by Live Well San Diego partner Rescue Agency. The challenge is open to youth ages 12 to 25 years old.
One person will be selected to win $1,200 and the opportunity to have their submitted content featured in awareness campaigns on County communication channels. Six more age group winners will also receive gift card awards of $400 and $100 along with a signed certificate.
Submissions will be accepted in three categories:
● Tik Talk- Youth are asked to provide an overview of a topic related to the opioid crisis, such as illicit fentanyl or naloxone. Submissions must be 10 minutes or less and feature at least one resource for the community.
● Fast Facts – Create an original handcrafted or digitally designed piece of visual art that highlights at least one fact specifically about illicit opioids or naloxone.
● Real Reel – Create a 15 to 90-second video that provides a personal testimonial or public service announcement related to the opioid crisis. Submissions must provide a clear call to action.
