The IDontDrink.com video contest is a statewide effort by the IBWDA to encourage Idaho teens to choose not to drink underage. The ongoing video production campaign is open to all Idaho students grades K-12, asking them to create their own video with the anti-underage drinking theme and showcasing their reasons to choose not to drink underage and instead focus on obtaining personal goals such as excellence in academics and athletics.
The IDontDrink.com website features student interviews and radio and TV announcements highlighting their reason to choose not to drink while underage. IDontDrink.com also has information and resources for parents and students.
The Idaho Beer and Wine Distributors Association is a non-profit trade association comprised of beer and wine distribution companies throughout the state of Idaho.
