The Dublin A.C.T. Coalition partnered with Dublin City Schools (OH) high school broadcast journalism classes to conduct a Marijuana Use Prevention Education PSA contest. High school youth competed for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place from across the district by submitting their marijuana use prevention PSAs. PSAs were judged by key community leaders involved in the Dublin A.C.T. Coalition. See the 1st place PSA here!

2013 Dublin Youth Substance Use Data

The 2013 Dublin Primary Prevention Awareness, Attitudes, and Use Survey (PPAAUS) was administered in November of 2013 district-wide to all 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students (only those students present on each school's selected survey date participated). The PPAAUS Survey is an anonymous, self-reporting, 150 question survey that measures students attitudes, knowledge and behaviors associated with substance use, as well as asks questions regarding violence (relational aggression, bullying, etc), messages received from parents, school staff, and community, pro-social family and community involvement, and more.
