YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Time is running out to vote for a Yorktown teen's chance to produce an anti-drug "Above the Influence" public service announcement commercial.

Caroline Cushner of Yorktown produced a pitch in the 2013 Above the Influence "Made By Me" contest. Videos were submitted from across the country by teens ages 13 to 18 and have been whittled down to 24 finalists.

Cushner's production explains how her PSA would be produced and the story of teens choosing whether to drink or use drugs.

The winner's PSA will be produced professionally by Above the Influence and shown on television and featured online. The winner will also get a trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in Above the Influence Day.

Voting continues on Facebook through Friday.
