Grads issued video challenge

The most significant way for teens to learn about the dangers of impaired driving is to hear about it from their peers.

The most significant way for teens to learn about the dangers of impaired driving is to hear about it from their peers.

With that in mind, the British Columbia Automobile Association has launched its second annual Dry Grad Video Challenge, urging grads from across the province and the Yukon to produce a short video sending the message that drinking, drugs and driving don’t mix.

Grade 12 students have until Nov. 14 to submit their videos on the http://bcaa.com/drygrad website.

Videos will be judged by a panel and the top five will appear on the bcaa.com/drygrad website for public voting in December. Winners will be announced in January and the producers of the first, second and third place videos will be awarded $4,000, $2,000 and $1,000, respectively, to support their school’s dry grad celebration.
