SCCUUD Holding Annual Billboard Contest


The Schuyler County Coalition on Underage Drinking (SCCUDD) is holding its 3rd annual billboard contest for Schuyler County students in grades 7 through 12. All students attending Odessa-Montour Central School, Watkins Glen Central School, and Bradford Central School are eligible, including homeschooled students residing in Schuyler County.

The contest is for substance abuse prevention messages with a “Prom or Graduation” theme. The winning billboard will be displayed during May and June.

Billboards created must have a message that informs, persuades, or states facts about substance abuse among teens and graduation and/or prom. Topic substances could include marijuana, alcohol, nicotine/tobacco/vaping, and/or prescription drug abuse or illegal drug use and how it is harmful to youth. The message can be about one, or all of these topics/substances.

Students are encouraged to look up facts and statistics and gain knowledge of why these substances are harmful to youth. Students are encouraged to be creative and think about a message that would reach youth.

Billboard ideas will need to be submitted by April 12th. All entries will be shared on SCCUDD’s social media platforms. The winner will be selected by members of Schuyler Teens against Alcohol, Nicotine, and other Drugs (STAND), and will be notified by email.

“Each year we do this, the submissions become more and more creative. I am looking forward to this year’s messages,” stated SCCUDD Project Coordinator Ward Brower.

Information regarding contest rules or entry will be provided at each school’s Main office or people can contact SCCUDD directly at 607-535-8140.
