Shout Down Drugs Prevention Concert is Next Week

It’s that time of year again. We’re just over a week again from the New Jersey Shout Down Drugs Annual Prevention Concert.

It’s hard to believe this year’s concert will be the 15th in the history of the program, which challenges high school students to create original music with lyrics that contain peer-to-peer substance use prevention messages.

In the previous 14 years, there have been so many great performers and great messages about living healthy, drug-free lives. I am just as excited to see what this year’s 13 finalists have in store for the Prevention Concert at 7 p.m. Friday, May 10th at Rutgers University’s Mastrobuono Theatre. FREE tickets are available HERE or by calling 973-467-2100 ext. 19.

Click HERE to listen to the original songs by this year’s finalists, and make sure to vote for your favorites. Online voting is open through May 9, and these totals will be factored into the performers’ scores on the night of the concert. The student or students who receive the highest score will receive a $5,000 music contract to perform their music at events throughout the state over the next year.
