Prevention Action Alliance, joining with the Ohio Start Talking! initiative and through a grant from Verizon, invites all Ohio middle school and high school students to encourage their peers to stay drug free by participating in the Start Talking! Start Recording: Ohio’s Youth Got Talent competition. The top three talent show finalists will get to perform on stage at the We Are The Majority Rally on April 19. Rally participants will vote on the winners.

The alliance will award scholarships to the top three contestants. The winner of first place will receive $2,500; second place, $1,500; and third place, $1,000. Groups that win will split their prize money among members. To take part in the contest, students must produce an original performance that addresses the Start Talking! message.
