Win $1,500 and More

We ask that coalitions participate in the Dose of Prevention Challenge for a chance to win $1500, a full scholarship to CADCA’s 2019 National Leadership Forum and more.


To qualify, your coalition must implement one of the below activities. However, implementing more than one activity will increase your chance to win!

  • Host an educational event (for example, a town hall meeting or a community breakfast)
  • Implement an integrated marketing and communications campaign (for example, the campaign could include media outreach, PSA placements, ad buys, social media activity, etc.)
  • Hold an innovative contest (for example, a middle school essay contest that encourages youth to write about why they are inspired to live drug free)
