Drinking and Driving Awareness Video Awarded $1300

A video submitted in April by Blackville School grade 12 students for this year's Safe Grad Initiative students was recently awarded just over $1300.00.

The Safe Grad Initiative is sponsored by Alcool NB Liquor (ANBL) in cooperative with the New Brunswick Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

A total of $20, 000 is offered to winning submissions to help fund safe grad activities. The value of the awards are dependent upon the quality of the submissions.

The objective of the Safe Grad Initiative is to promote responsible choices among teenagers when celebrating high school graduations.

The video created by the four students at Blackville School provides some statistical information as it recounts a tragedy that occurred due to drinking and driving.

The students who produced the video are Calvin Furlong, Bailey Coughlan, Michael Waugh and Brooke Underhill. It also features a Blackville School teacher, Mr. Aaron Johnston.
