January 24, 2019

Do you have a talented teenager looking for a break in music?

The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) is inviting New Jersey High School students to share drug free messages through their original music as part of the 2019 New Jersey Shout Down Drugs contest. Up until Feb.1, students can submit their songs and lyrics about substance use prevention. Voting will begin on Feb. 15.

“No matter what genre of music – rock, jazz, hip-hop or R&B – students have a great opportunity to send a positive message about substance use prevention to their peers that could have an impact on their lives,” PDFNJ Executive Director Angelo Valente said.

One finalist will be selected from each county,  along with a few wild card contestants. Each student will perform their original songs in the 15th annual Prevention Concert, which will be held at Rutgers University’s Victoria J. Mastrobuono Theatre in New Brunswick on Friday, May 10.

The winner of the New Jersey Shout Down Drugs competition, as decided by judges and announced at the end of the Prevention Concert, will receive a $5,000 music contract. The second- and third-place performers will receive $3,000 and $2,000 music contracts, respectively, with the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey.
