Local Teens Win 1st Place in Statewide Video Contest
Teens from Oregon High School won first place in a Statewide video competition.
The Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence co-hosted the 4th No More Teen Dating Abuse Video Challenge along with Illinois Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger. Verizon also sponsored the challenge.
Teens from Illinois high schools took place in the video contest and created videos promoting healthy relationships. Domestic violence is an epidemic in America and this contest sheds light on what healthy relationships should look like.
The first place winner was submitted by students from Oregon High School in Oregon, Illinois.
The video is quite powerful, showing the incredible difference between a healthy relationship, and one that is not.
Congratulations to these young, talented and educated teens who are raising awareness.
