National Youth Media Awards competition The competition is primarily aimed at secondary schools, colleges and youth clubs nationwide and is supported by the Department of Health, the HSE, the Ana Liffey Drug Project, Healthy Ireland,The Union of Students in Ireland, The Irish Second Level Student Union and the Drugs.ie website. Drugs.ie is Ireland’s National Drug and Alcohol Information and Support Website.The drugs.ie site has in excess of 120,000 unique Irish visitors each year and over 500,000 international visitors. This annual drugs education competition aims to help students explore and understand various issues relating to drug and alcohol use in Irish society. To enter, students are asked to research topics or share their personal experiences and create either: a short video, an audio podcast, a news article; or a poster on one of the following themes: (a) Why do some young people use drugs? (b) What impact does alcohol have on relationships? The age categories for entering are: 12-14; 15-17; 18-21; 22-25. By getting involved, students can explore the issue of drugs and alcohol from a constructionist learning experience. This can have a more meaningful impact on their own understanding of the issues – as this type of learning experience is effective when people are also active in making tangible objects in the real world. In turn, schools can take a proactive and innovative approach to raising awareness and understanding of the issues; issues that affect the lives of many young people in Ireland. On this basis, we are asking all schools to encourage students to enter – as individual entrants – or as a group project. Winners from the four age categories will receive an iPad mini and the overall winner will receive a prize of €2,000. Winners will also have their work published on drugs.ie. The competition coincides with existing modules delivered through the S.P.H.E curriculum. The competition also allows a unique opportunity for the topic of drugs and alcohol to be explored in Art, English and Media class. Video, audio, article and poster entries created by young people as part of the competition are available on the drugs.ie site.These are useful resources which can be used to raise awareness among students in schools. Drugs.ie have collaborated with the 2017 Audi Dublin International Film Festival to present a number of entries from the Drugs.ie ‘Let’s Talk About Drugs’ National Youth Media Awards Competition Short Video Category. Drugs.ie are encouraging young people to enter the competition for the possibility of having their work featured as part of the festival which takes place mid-February. The competition has also collaborated with The Irish Times Student Hub (http://www.irishtimes.com/student-hub). As a result winning entries will be considered for publication on Irish Times Student Hub (and future 2nd level hub) subject to editorial approval. You will find full competition details, information for teachers, recommended research sites and examples of previous winners at...
