'Let's Talk about Drugs' National Youth Media Awards Competition 2018

The Drugs.ie “Let’s Talk About Drugs” National Youth Media Awards is an annual drug education competition that aims to help young people explore and understand various issues relating to drug and alcohol use in Irish society. To enter, young people are asked to research topics or share their personal experiences and create either: a short video, an audio podcast, a news article; or a poster. The age categories for entering are: 12-14; 15-17; 18-21; 22-25.

The themes for the 2018 competition will be divided into two categories based on age. The themes for the 12-14 and 15-17 age categories are:

  • Talk about - underage drinking and the risks
  • Talk about - cannabis and the risks

By getting involved, young people can explore the issue of drugs and alcohol from a constructionist learning experience. This can have a more meaningful impact on their own understanding of the issues.

Winners from the four age categories will receive a €250 One4All gift card and the overall winner will receive a prize of €1,000 One4All gift cards. Winners will also have their work published on drugs.ie.
