Governor Wolf:

We contacted Governor Wolf and asked him to make a statement regarding our message for the video.

Mr. Wolf and his team supplied releases for the video.

Participants were tasked to create a three-minute video raising awareness around the stigmas and myths surrounding opioid addiction. The video was named the top submission in western Pennsylvania by a panel of FBI agents, police officers, drug treatment center employees and former addicts. South Fayette High School will receive a $5,000 grant. Media teacher Matt Caprio and School Resource Officer Jeff Sgro sponsored the project.
