PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley is kicking off a statewide anti-methamphetamine campaign with a competition open to all colleges in South Dakota.

Jackley’s office, law enforcement agencies and various organizations have partnered for the “No.Meth.Ever.” campaign.

Students interested in participating in the first phase of the effort are being asked to submit public service announcements, viral video scripts and storyboards to be used in the campaign, which is trying to reach South Dakota residents between the ages of 15 and 25 and who may be at risk of doing illegal drugs.

Jackley’s office says the students’ proposals should help young people understand why it is important that stay away from meth, heroin and other drugs.

Jackley says meth use and arrest numbers have more than doubled over the past decade.
