2023 PSA Contest for Youth Suicide Prevention

Prevent Suicide PA is once again hosting the annual PSA contest for high school students. This is a great opportunity to engage students in a dialogue around suicide prevention, the importance of positive messaging, and communicating effectively. Staff who have participated in the past have seen this to teach students on many levels (academically, socially, and emotionally), and students have been empowered to use their voice to reach out to their peers.

Each school building or community organization may only submit one entry per category. We encourage you to consider a local challenge within your school or community organization to help identify the best submission per category. The categories include: poster, 60-second video, 30-second video, and either 15- or 30- second audio.  This year’s contest submissions are due by Wednesday, December 14, 2022. Contest rules and submission guidelines will be updated on the current PSA website soon.

All the winning and honorable mention PSAs from previous years are available for free public use and can be accessed by visiting  These are great resources to use during Suicide Prevention Month and throughout the year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Julia Mead at [email protected].
