About the Contest

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

Non-professional filmmakers who are residents of Oregon and are under 25 years old. (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!
