Survey Registration

The Maryland Department of Health is conducting this survey to learn about high schoolers and their health behaviors. Your participation is important. Sharing your experiences will help identify emerging issues so that Maryland can plan and evaluate programs to support the health of young people like yourself. 

Your participation in this survey is voluntary, and you may withdraw at any time without any consequences. Participating in this survey does not affect your grades in school. The questions that ask about your background will be used only to describe the types of students completing this survey. The information will not be used to find out your name. No names will ever be reported. Your survey responses are confidential and anonymous as they will be grouped with other responses.  

After completing the survey, you will receive a $10 gift card as a token of appreciation for your participation, and it will be sent to the email provided. Only the first 1,000 respondents will qualify to receive a gift card.
