In just three years this campaign has reached over 100,000 youth in the mid-atlantic region and we are proud to open this campaign to schools across the nation in 2014!
High school students, grades 9-12, will visit www.MentorFoundationUSA.org and enter the message that keeps them motivated for success and away from drugs. It is that easy to become an advocate for prevention and have a shot at becoming an H&M “Fashion Designer.” Mentor Foundation USA will choose a winning slogan and H&M will design a T-Shirt featuring that slogan to be sold nationwide! The winning student will receive a $150 H&M gift card, 200 of the winning T-Shirts to share with their peers and the student will be honored at our Shattering the Myths youth rally in Washington D.C. in January 2015
This is an incredible opportunity for the youth of this country to have a voice to speak out against drug and substance abuse in a creative and exciting way. Our winning students receive the spotlight they deserve while motivating their schools and communities. Mentor Foundation USA is proud to partner with H&M in our work to prevent drug abuse among youth while helping them identify and pursue their personal and professional goals.
The campaign is open for submissions August 26th to November 14th 2014 and students can enter their slogans at www.MentorfoundationUSA.org. You can follow all of the action, countdown the campaign and see highlights from our previous winning students on twitter @mentor_usa, on Facebook and on our blog. Help us spread the word and encourage all young people you know to enter a slogan.
