McRoberts' dry grad video earns contest second-place
A dry grad video has earned students from Hugh McRoberts Secondary second place in a contest sponsored by B.C. Automobile Association.
Entitled "It Could Be You", the entry from McRoberts was one of 48 videos submitted for the contest, and was among five to be short-listed by public safety experts and BCAA representatives.
The videos (http://tinyurl.com/McRobertsDryGrad) were then placed online for public voting, and more than 6,500 votes were registered, along with more than 23,000 views on YouTube.
McRoberts' video earned them $2,000, with the top prize of $4,000 gong to George Elliot Secondary in Oyama, B.C., and third prize to New Westminster Secondary, with $1,000.
The Dry Grad Video 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.
