Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Attorney General Issue Video Challenge to Combat Teen Prescription Drug Abuse [VIDEO]
In an effort to raise awareness and curb prescription drug abuse in teenagers, the Indianapolis Colts have teamed up with the office of State Attorney General Greg Zoeller to create a state-wide video contest giving students in grades six through twelve the opportunity to win tickets to an upcoming Colts game, and a meet-and-greet with kicker, Adam Vinatieri.
In a press release provided to media outlets across the state, the Attorney General's office cites a study from the National Institute on Drug Abuse which states "one in five 12th grade students has abused prescription drugs in their lifetime," a startling trend they're hoping to turn around by educating teens on the dangers of abuse through the video campaign.
To enter, students are asked to film a 30-second video showcasing their own unique take on the dangers of abusing prescription drugs. All videos must be uploaded to YouTube with the hashtag, #KickRxAbuse somewhere in the title.
The winner will get to tour the Colt’s complex and meet Adam Vinatieri, as well as four VIP Colts game tickets, free dinner at the Colts Grille and a limo ride to and from dinner. The student’s winning school will also receive a prize in the form of a $5,000 cash prize courtesy of the Colts.
