USD Students Compete to Create Anti-Meth Campaign
Haley Danae Westphal, a media & journalism major from Battle Creek, Iowa, placed first in Region 2 and won $2,100. Chris Timmerman, a media & journalism major from Johnston, Iowa, placed second and won $1,500.
They will compete against teams from South Dakota State University who placed first and second in Region 1. The overall state winner, to be announced this month, will take home an additional $2,400.
Also this month the second phase of the contest will be conducted, offering more prize money, in which students will create social media campaigns on the same subject.
“The contest goal was to find a creative and fresh message to educate the public and our youth about the dangers of meth, and our students delivered,” said Attorney General Marty Jackley. “We had excellent entries and a difficult task in choosing our regional winners.”
