It’s time for the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, Arizona Affiliate’s third annual video contest – “REPRESENT IF YOU’RE ABOVE IT!”  The contest gives teens across the state a chance to create a project that highlights the skills and talents that help them stay above the influence of drugs and alcohol – whether it is playing sports, singing or showing off the next great recipe.  Previously a video contest, this year’s contest includes a category for still photography as well.

“REPRESENT IF YOU’RE ABOVE IT” is designed to give teenagers, school districts and media departments a unique and educational way to discuss tough issues.  This year’s contest not only includes videos but still photography as well.

The contest is open to residents of Arizona between the ages of 12 and 18 at the time of entry.  Entrants can start by visiting to find the entry form, rules and information about the contest.  All entries must be postmarked by midnight on Monday, Jan. 18, 2010.  The grand prize winner in each category will be awarded $250 and the runner-up in each category will receive $150.

Last year dozens of teens participated in the program, with the grand prize awarded to Andrew Madrid, Wesley Ollerton, Lawson Neilsen and Kyler Lee, students from St. Johns High School in St. Johns, Arizona.  Last year’s winning video is available for viewing on The Partnership’s website,

The contest is sponsored by the Phoenix Coyotes and Phoenix Suns.

Tell all the teens you know to enter their projects for a chance to win!
