The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is launching the “I VetoViolence Because . . .’”: Teen Dating Violence Prevention Public Service Announcement Contest. The purpose of the contest is to encourage the development of video public service announcements (PSA) that increase the understanding that teen dating violence is a public health problem and
that prevention efforts can stop it before it starts.
VetoViolence, asks violence prevention professionals, allied organizations, students, VetoViolence Facebook page fans, and the general public to develop PSAs about teen dating violence and the importance of prevention. The intended effect of the PSAs is to inspire viewers to take steps to stop teen dating violence before it starts by promoting healthy relationships among friends and loved ones and within schools and communities. The PSA finalists and winners will be showcased in three categories on the VetoViolence Facebook page, allowing participants to reach more people with effective and creative messages about preventing teen dating violence.
Contest begins on July 15, 2013 and ends on August 15, 2013. Judging will take place August 16-30, 2013, and winners will be notified on September 6, 2013. Prizes will be awarded before September 30, 2013.
