A short film with a serious message, created by a group of local high school students, has been selected as a finalist in a dry grad video contest.

Six Hugh McRoberts students are now vying for the top prize in the B.C. Automobile Association-sponsored contest: $4,000 toward their school's dry grad celebrations.

Grade 12 students Som Ghosh, Patrick Fleming, Kevin Abad, Liam Slade, Cam Dowle and Kevin Mang spent the last few months creating the three-minute video. The film depicts a group of young men drinking, showing the consequences of one man's actions based on two scenarios.

A second-place prize of $2,000 and a third-place prize of $1,000—both toward dry grad celebrations—will also be awarded.

Online voting at bcaa.com/drygrad will determine the winner. Voting closes at noon on Dec. 12.
