2021 Gambling Awareness Poster & Video Contest

All Berks County students and senior citizens are encouraged to enter our 2021 Poster & Video Contest inspired by the theme “The House Always Wins.” Submissions due April 9.

The contest is being sponsored by the Council on Chemical Abuse (COCA) in recognition of March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month. COCA has held a gambling-themed poster contest for several years, but this is the first year that a video contest has been included. It is also the first year that senior citizens are eligible to enter.

The contest is open to all Berks County students in grades 3 through 12, including cyber-schooled and home-schooled youth, as well as to Berks County senior citizens ages 60 and up.. Submissions will be judged in four age categories: elementary (grades 3-5), middle school (grades 6-9), high school (grades 10-12), and senior citizens.

Multiple prizes will be awarded in each category, include gift cards worth up to $100, Reading Fightin’ Phils tickets and recognition online. In addition, the first place winners of the poster contest will have their artwork displayed on billboards around Berks County.
