Twenty-five students from four Maryland colleges will share in $46,000 in scholarship funds after creating opioid-awareness videos this spring.
Maryland’s Higher Education Commission created a contest for students interested in helping to combat opioid abuse among their college peers. The commission asked students to learn about opioid abuse by attending in-person or virtual retreats.
The students were from Hood College, Montgomery College, University of Maryland Eastern Shore and University of Maryland College Park. For a list of students who submitted the winning entries, visit the HEC’s website.
The videos could be on the following topics: Naloxone, Fentanyl, Maryland’s Good Samaritan Law or Maryland’s Suicide Prevention program.
In a news release announcing the winners, HEC secretary Dr. James D. Fielder said he was impressed with the student work.
