Nevada Students Invited to Help Raise Awareness About Opioid Misuse and Abuse Prevention

By | Press Release, Uncategorized

SilverSummit Healthplan is sponsoring the OpiEnd Youth Challenge poster contest to help raise awareness about opioid misuse and abuse prevention. Nevada students between 9 and 14 are invited to learn about opioids and the harm opioid abuse can cause, then are challenged to design a poster that helps to raise awareness of the issue. Winning students can receive national and state level prizes by joining SilverSummit Healthplan in the battle against opioid abuse.

Poster submissions will be judged at both the state and national levels with monetary prizes to the winner’s school or club, and a savings bond to the winning student entrant. The national winner will receive $5,000, with $3,000 for second place, and $1,500 for third place.

Nevada judges will choose the winning poster from among the state’s submissions based on judging criteria, and the school or non-profit organization that helped the student apply will receive a $1,000 prize from SilverSummit Healthplan.

Full details are available at OpiEndYouthChallenge.com. The site also includes downloadable information sheets about opioids and guidance on designing a poster. The deadline for entry is November 1.
