On July 1, 2014, the Millstream Interactive Multimedia Class, taught by Michael Magnas, was awarded Third Place in the state-wide 2014 Don’t Get Me Started PSA and Music Video Contest sponsored by the Ohio Association of Community Behavioral Health Authorities and the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
In the fall of 2013, the class was asked by the Hancock County Opiate Task Force Education Committee to write, develop, and produce a short video that would appeal to their peers and address the risk of prescription drug misuse and abuse. Impressed by the quality of work presented by the students, the Task Force submitted this video for adjudication in the video contest.
This video contest was a project of the Don’t Get Me Started (DGMS) anti-drug campaign. DGMS draws on collaborative community outreach initiatives and engagement strategies to increase awareness and the openness to discuss the issue of prescription drug misuse and abuse among youth and young adults.
Representatives from the class met at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus to be recognized for their work on this video and their commitment to promoting a drug-free lifestyle. The class will receive a $500.00 scholarship to be used for future class project.
