Operation Prevention Video Challenge

Students have a chance to lead the change in schools - and win up to $10,000 doing it.

Operation Prevention, an initiative brought to you by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Discovery Education, aims to combat the growing epidemic of prescription opioid misuse and heroin use by educating students about the science behind addiction and its impacts on the brain and body. 

Now students can go beyond the classroom and get involved combating the epidemic. The Operation Prevention Video Challenge encourages students to send a message to their peers about prescription opioid misuse by creating a 30-60 second original Public Service Announcement. Your students have a unique voice to reach their peers and raise awareness about the dangers of this widespread issue. 

High School students who enter have the chance to win incredible prizes from the DEA and DEA Educational Foundation:

  • First Place: $10,000
  • Second Place: $5,000
  • Third Place: $1,000
  • People's Choice: A trip to Quantico, Virginia for an exclusive tour of the DEA Training Academy.

The Challenge closes on March 20, 2018!
