Two media and journalism students from the University of South Dakota (USD) were recently named finalists in the state attorney general’s “No. Meth. Ever.” contest, which challenged students to create an advertising campaign against methamphetamine use.
“The contest goal was to find a creative and fresh message to educate the public and our youth about the dangers of meth, and our students delivered,” said the attorney general, Marty Jackley. “We had excellent entries and a difficult task in choosing our regional winners.”
Haley Danae Westphal, of Battle Creek, Iowa, and Chris Timmerman, of Johnston, Iowa, won first and second place, respectively, in their region. Westphal earned $2,100 and Timmerman received $1,500. Their campaigns, will now go head to head with those of the other state region's first- and second-place winners. Jackley will announce the $2,400 winner of the competition later this month.
The second phase of the contest, also currently underway, asks students to create social media campaigns discouraging use of meth.
