About the Contest

For the 23rd year, the New Jersey Department of Human Services (NJDHS) invites pre-teens and teens across the state to participate in its Annual Teen Media Contest sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Family Development, focusing on parental responsibility. The statewide contest is open to all New Jersey middle school and high school aged students.

Student entrants are asked to create and submit a piece of original work which complements the state’s ongoing advertising and community outreach campaign. For 2018, we will be accepting entries in the following categories:

  • Hand-drawn or hand-painted artwork
  • Written word (essay, poetry, composition, etc.)

The theme for 2018 encourages students to illustrate — through art or the written word — What Does Your Family Tree Look Like? This concept can be taken literally, abstractly, or be left to the imagination. It shows that each family tree is different and that it is okay that not everyone has the same type of family background. Each and every person’s story is unique. 

The submissions deadline for the 2018 contest is April 2, 2018. An awards ceremony for the top three winners in each school-level for each entry category is scheduled for mid-May.
