Stop Rx Abuse

Each year we help warn others about the dangers of prescription drug abuse through our student video contest.

Any high school or middle school student in North Carolina can participate by creating a 30-second public service announcement video on teen prescription drug abuse and entering it for a chance to win prizes. 

Watch videos that won last year's contest.
