About the Contest

A 30-60 second video PSA to increase awareness about problem gambling. Theme: “Have the conversation.”

Non-professional youth filmmakers. (If you’re under 18, we will need your parent/guardian’s consent.)

Problem gambling is often considered a “hidden” addiction. One in every 37 Oregon adults has a problem with gambling, and the numbers are higher among youth and young adults. We want more people to be aware that people can get in over their heads, even with fantasy sports, and that help is available!


Judging & Prizes:

ALL eligible entries will receive a minimum of $5 in Dutch Bros gift card (for 18) or $5 in Subway gift card just for participating!

For all who entered:

Thank you so much for creating a video. We had some great competition again this year. ALL of our entries this year were created by people 18 years and younger!  Initial judging took place on Tuesday, 4/11, and judges decided on the top four videos. Now the judging is in YOUR hands!

When final judging is complete, you’ll get a message about your award and where we should send/bring it. If you aren’t a finalist, you’ll be receiving a $5 coffee card or $5 Subway card (your choice). There is one award per entry.
