ABOUT

As part of the National Crime Victims' Rights Week campaign, the Navajo County Victim Services Department sponsors a Video PSA Contest for High School Students in Navajo County to promote the importance of preventing alcohol and drug misuse among youth.  

In addition to this contest, we will bring local training to our youth to educate them about substance abuse prevention in an effort to build advocates and teen peer support to fight substance abuse amongst teens.  The training will take place during our Victims' Rights Symposium on April 26th, 2023 at the Northland Pioneer College in Snowflake.

 Winners will receive a cash prize and will be recognized at our awards ceremony luncheon.  The winning PSA will become a resource utilized by the Navajo County Attorney's Office and utilized as a PSA for the Navajo County Drug Stories Campaign.  


What is a PSA?

The contest is an opportunity for Navajo County Teens to demonstrate how students are taking action to prevent alcohol and other drug misuse on their campus and to inspire and challenge others to take action to prevent alcohol and other drug misuse among youth.
