Thomas E. Delahanty II, U.S. attorney for the District of Maine, is pleased to announce the Youth Voices on the Opiate Crisis Media Contest.
Each day in Maine, on average, one person dies of a drug overdose; in 2015 and 2016, overdose deaths increased by over 31 percent. In these challenging times, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maine and the Office of the Maine Attorney General are jointly sponsoring the Youth Voices on the Opiate Crisis Media Contest.
This contest is open to Maine students and is designed to provide a platform to creatively document and reflect on the impact of substance abuse in their lives and communities. The goal of this contest is to build awareness and spark conversation among Maine’s youth. Prize money will be awarded to winning entrants.
