About the Top 24 Under 24 Drug Mythbusters Challenge

December 6, 2013

Meet the Winners (and see how they were selected)>>
   

In support of this year's National Drug Facts Week, Jan. 27- Feb 2, SparkAction and our partners issued a national challenge to find the top 24 young people age 24 or under who are informing and empowering their peers to make decisions based on facts, not rumors, myths or peer pressure.

We ask you to nominate young people who are using their talents, passion and creativity to break through the noise and help peers get the facts—not myths, not pressure but real knowledge—about alcohol and substances. And you did!

The winners were announced on Feb. 13, 2014. Check out these amazing young people making a difference in their communities to promote awareness of science-based drug facts and to prevent substance abuse.

The contest, in support of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and it's National Drug Facts Week, was hosted by SparkAction and our partners:

  • Youth Service America
  • Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)
  • Above the Influence
  • The American Association of School Administrators (AASA)
  • The CorpsNetwork
  • OurTime.org
  • Young Invincibles
  • The National Collaboration for Youth,
  • The Roosevelt Institute Campus Network
  • Ready by 21®.

About the Contest

Tell us why and how you or someone you know is busting myths: If enough people share your story in social media you could be selected as one of the Top 24.

How: Nominate someone awesome (yourself or someone you know) using our online form.  Just make sure they're between the ages of 13 and 24.

When:  The deadline for submissions is Feb. 2, 2014. But don't fear, it's a quick form. Winners will be announced on Valentine's Day.

And while you're at it, learn more about National Drug Facts Week and plan an event.

 

The Details

The contest is open to any one residing in the United States and who is age 13 to 24. Note: Winners of SparkAction contests and challenges in the last 12 months are not eligible to be selected as a Top 24 under 24 Drug Mythbuster.

Winners will be selected by a combination of "crowdsourced" Facebook voting and a final review by SparkAction and our partners. All winners and their nominees will be notified by email about their status as Top 24 Under 24 Drug Mythbusters.

No, it is not pro-drug contest. The contest is about young people who are informing & empowering their peers about the dangers of substance abuse using scientific fact. So many young people hear myths and false rumors about how drugs and alcohol are not damaging to their brains and bodies, and we're celebrating the young people who are telling the truth and helping their peers make informed, healthy decisions to stay clean!
