The DVC of SCV presents our first annual Teen Public Service Announcement video contest in honor of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. The contest asks participants to create a 60-second film to engage viewers, and educate or bring awareness to violence in teen relationships. Some suggestions for what the PSA should include are: gender roles, media literacy, teen dating violence, healthy friendships and relationships, boundaries, consent, anger, and how to help a friend. Two prizes worth $500 each will be awarded. Follow the link for contest rules! Submissions should be sent via YouTube link to Alexandra.

What does teen dating violence look like? Recognizing the tactics used to hurt, intimidate, frighten, and control young people in intimate relationships is critical if we are to take action to address and prevent it. The NRCDV’s #ThisIsDV campaign elevates the voices of youth survivors during Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month to help validate and name their experiences and raise awareness about the multifaceted nature of teen dating violence.
