Kentucky's fight against the prescription drug epidemic affects families across the Blue Grass.

And children aren't immune to the problem.

The state is inviting teenagers to share their stories of the perils of prescription drug abuse in an annual contest.

Students create Public Service Announcement videos of up to 30 seconds to win prizes like an iPad and gift cards.

The PSA's are posted online and sent out to television stations throughout the state.
