2018 New Jersey Shout Down Drugs Contest
Thursday, February 1, 2018
Created in 2005, New Jersey Shout Down Drugs challenges high school students to create original music and lyrics with powerful substance abuse prevention messages to allow teens to deliver the prevention message to each other through their favorite medium of music. County Finalists are chosen by peer judges to perform their original songs at the Annual Statewide Prevention Concert, held in May, at a state-of-the-art venue. First, second and third place winners are chosen by a panel of judges that night to receive music contracts worth $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000 respectively to perform their winning songs at different events throughout the state during the year. Through this website the public is invited to vote for their favorite songs by participating in two phases of online voting. Since 2010, when the online voting began, hundreds of thousands of votes have been cast.
