The Don’t Get Hooked on Drugs NJ Family Fishing Tournament runs through July 28.
This online fishing tournament isn’t about the size of the fish. It’s about encouraging families to head outdoors and bond over a fun-filled day of fishing. It’s the perfect opportunity to open up the lines of communication to help keep them drug free.
Research shows that parents who often communicate with their children significantly decrease their chances of abusing substances. It is important for parents and guardians to spend time quality time with their children, especially during the summertime when kids have more time on their hands and could potentially get into trouble.
The competition will take place from July 19-28 and requires no entrance fee. To enter, take a photo of your family enjoying a fishing trip and post it on our Facebook (Drug-FreeNJ), Instagram (@DrugFreeNJ), or Twitter (@DrugFreeNJ) pages with the hashtag #DrugFreeNJ. The picture must include the youth participant and a parent or guardian. Eligible candidates must be 18 years old or younger, New Jersey residents, and be accompanied by a parent or guardian while fishing anywhere in New Jersey. The winners are picked randomly.
All entries must be submitted no later than July 28. A total of $500 will be awarded to five randomly selected submissions on August 5.
