2024 National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® (NDAFW) Art Contest

National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week®, or NDAFW, is an annual event dedicated to fostering conversations among young people about the science of drug use and addiction.

Launched in 2010 by scientists at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), this observance aims to bring together scientists, students, educators, healthcare providers, and community partners to promote understanding and address youth drug and alcohol use on both local and national levels. In 2016, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism joined as a partner, expanding the focus to include alcohol-related topics. NIDA and NIAAA, both part of the National Institutes of Health, collaborate with various organizations, media outlets, and government agencies to raise awareness about NDAFW and encourage educational events in communities.

This initiative provides a valuable platform for teens to learn about the science behind drug use and addiction, ultimately contributing to informed decision-making and healthier communities.

Our Community Initiatives Division partnered with various schools in the state to educate and promote the harmful effects of Drugs and Alcohol. We invite you to check out the winning artists!
