WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – The U.S. Attorney’s Office will be announcing the high school winner of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Drug Prevention Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest this weekend at the 77th Annual OVAC Rudy Mumley All-Star Football Game.

United States Attorney William Ihlenfeld asked high schools in the Northern District of West Virginia to create a drug-free message to share with students, encouraging them to spread the message of the dangers of drugs to their peers.

The contest was open to all high schools in the 32 counties of the Northern District of West Virginia. Students were encouraged to write, act, and produce in their own television PSA, promoting a drug-free high school.

All videos were judged by a panel of law enforcement partners and public affairs professionals from across the country, including those from other U.S. Attorney’s Offices, the FBI, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The winner will receive an award from the U.S. Attorney’s Office during the game, and the PSA will be shared on the stadium’s large screen and scoreboard.

The OVAC Rudy Mumley All-Star Football Game is Saturday, July 22 beginning at 7:15 Wheeling Island Stadium.
