About the contest

We asked entrants to create a short video about PRESCRIPTION FOR CHANGE– what they, their community, or their peers can do to increase understanding of the dangers and reduce the problems of prescription drug misuse and abuse in our community.

The winning videos already have been screened at two important prevention meetings attended by Ventura County Behaviorial Health educators, prevention providers, and leaders. All videos will be broadcast on local cable access stations.

Congratulations to all 25 of the young people who entered the 11 videos! We appreciate all your hard work!
