These incredible students created an outstanding public service video in a Michigan statewide contest hosted by Prevention Network, that ultimately won them first prize for a weeklong trip to attend a training conference. This mid-year CADCA or the Community Anti Drug Coalitions of America conference will be from July 16-20, at Grapevine, Texas this year. The students winnings cover the cost of airline travel and lodging but not ground transportation or food. Consider donating to the GoFundMe page: https://gofund.me/2b0e1829 to help cover these essential expenses.
The public service announcement (PSA) video was a challenging contest. Within an hour, the students had to create a video on their cell phones. The local team was vying against competitors from across the state. There were nearly 100 youths who attended the Youth Coalition Leadership Retreat, April 17, as part of the new Michigan Youth Coalition Network (MYCN) program. The Hamtramck All Stars focused their video on vaping prevention, emphasizing that statistics show the majority of peers their age do not vape, and vaping is not worth missing time with their friends.
Per diem costs are $64 per day for food (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and $48 for first and last day of travel for $288 per student.
+ $100 travel to airport, hotel,
x 8 people for a total of $3,104.00
