Cheyenne, Wyo -- On October 11, 2021, Safe2Tell Wyoming announced they will be holding their third annual student video contest. The video contest is designed to create awareness among students about the various safety concerns Wyoming students can report to the Safe2Tell Wyoming tip line. The contest is open to Wyoming students in 9th through 12th grade. The deadline for submission is Monday, December 6th.
The contest will kick off the return to in-person learning. The winning team will be awarded $250. In addition, the school of the winning team will also receive $150. The contest prize money was made possible through funding that is provided by the Wyoming Department of Health's Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant, COVID-19 Supplemental funds.
“I think everyone is excited to go back to in-person learning, but we can't forget that teens deal with many real life and hard hitting issues,” said Breanna Ball, Safe2Tell Wyoming Public Relations Specialist. “As students in the state return to in-person learning, it is essential they are aware of the Safe2Tell Wyoming program and the many helpful resources that exist in our Wyoming communities."
The winning video submission will be announced on Friday, December 10th. For more information regarding the contest and for past examples, please visit: www.safe2tellwy.org/videocontest
