PSA Contest Announcement

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

psa winners2017February is recognized nationally as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Abuse does not discriminate by age. In fact, one in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. And only 33% of teens who were in a violent relationship ever told anyone about the abuse (loveisrespect.org).

To bring light to this issue that affects so many young people in our community, the WCA hosts an annual PSA contest to get young people talking and thinking about their relationships. The 2018 PSA contest is now open for submissions!

These PSAs are intended to give teens the opportunity to inform their peers about what abusive relationships look like, the difference between unhealthy and healthy relationships, and the resources available to anyone who is struggling or has questions.

This contest is open to any junior high/middle school or high school student in the state of Idaho. First prize is $100!  Runner-up cash prizes will also be given. More information about the rules and guidelines of this contest can be found at our website here.

The deadline for this contest is February 9th, and the winners will be announced at the end of the month! If you have any questions about the contest, please email Tracy .

To see submissions from previous years, check out our YouTube channel here.
