RCMP seeking teen drug-free videos
The RCMP wants videos made by teens for teens to promote drug-free lifestyles.
The national contest invites videographers in Grades 7 to 12 to submit 30- to 60-second films in English or French that talk about the benefits or successes of being drug free and deal with peer pressure to try drugs.
The videos will be shown in schools as part of the RCMP’s Canadian Champions program to encourage drug-free lifestyles.
Prizes include Canadian Olympic hockey jerseys signed by Sidney Crosby, Toronto Blue Jays T-shirts signed by Brett Lawrie and Adam Loewen, and iPod Touches.
Videos will be judged for content, creativity, public feedback, quality of video and technical skill.
The deadline for entries is April 28 and winners will be notified via e-mail or telephone May 29.
