Burnaby, British Columbia – Three schools in British Columbia will be celebrating “dry” graduations thanks to their anti-impaired driving videos. The British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA) has announced the winners of its second annual Dry Grad Video Challenge.
The challenge asked Grade 12 students across B.C. and the Yukon to produce videos urging fellow teens never to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A total of 48 videos were submitted and the top five, selected by a panel of public safety experts, broadcasting and video production professions and BCAA representatives, were placed online for public voting. Over 6,500 online votes were submitted and the five videos collectively received over 23,000 views on YouTube.
The top prize of $4,000 to help fund a dry grad celebration went to George Elliot Secondary School in Oyama, B.C. Second prize of $2,000 went to Hugh McRoberts Secondary School in Richmond, while New Westminster Secondary School took the $1,000 third prize.
