What does this involve?

The online survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete for teens and is entirely anonymous. At the end of the survey, you will have the option to enter a draw to win one of two $100 or one $250 online gift card to a store of your choice!

You will also have the choice to participate in surveys over the next year. Every time you complete a survey, you will be entered into a draw for another $100 or $250 online gift card, that means you could win up to $1000!

Spring 2021 survey is now closed! Thank you to the youth who participated. We will contact you again in the fall for more chances to win!
