Story from “Good Morning Idaho” on KIVI Channel 6 by Rachel Garceau

The Idaho Beer & Wine Distributors Association has launched its second annual “I Don’t Drink” video contest. Chris Bantrup with the Association joined Good Morning Idaho to talk about the campaign, which e
ncourages Idaho teens to abstain from illegal underage drinking and instead focus on attaining excellence in other areas such as academics and athletics.

It’s a video production competition, which invites students to create videos explaining why they’ve chosen not to drink alcohol. The contest is open to both individuals and teams, ages 12-18 years old. Top prizes include iPad minis and iPods. Schools with the most submissions can win prizes as well. Deadline for submissions is January 31st, 2014.

For more information on the campaign, watch the video above, and then visit the campaign’s website to learn how your teenager can submit their own video.
