Kentucky students are being recruited to spread the message about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

State Attorney General Jack Conway announced yesterday the start of a public service announcement contest for middle and high school students.  As part of the competition, Kentucky students will produce a 30-second video showing the perils of prescription drug abuse.

The first-place winner will receive an Apple iPad. The runner-up will receive a $100 Amazon.com gift card.

The deadline for submitting a video is Dec. 6. Winners will be announced a week later.

Students wanting to find out how to submit a PSA for consideration can visit the attorney general's prescription drug abuse prevention page at http://ag.ky.gov/rxabuse .
