“I Don’t Drink Campaign” Accepting Entries for Video Contest
BOISE – Idaho’s I don’t drink campaign is accepting entries for a statewide video contest.
They want gem state high school students to share their reasons for not drinking.
And you may recognize the local high school student that has been a big help with that campaign.
Eagle High School’s star quarterback Tanner Mangum has taken time to help the campaign in an effort to fight underage drinking state wide.
“I just decided from an early age that I wasn’t going to do that. I wanted to stay away from that and stay out of trouble and make sure that I stayed at my best for athletics,” said Mangum.
The football star says he couldn’t be happier to be a part of the campaign.
“Yeah, I think this is a good cause and they’re doing a god job of getting it out there with the commercials and the ads. They let kids know that they’re not alone if they don’t drink, there are lots of us out there that are trying to be a good example,” Mangum continued.
Idaho’s I don’t drink campaign is asking for entries in a video essay contest. They want to know the reasons teens make this decision and foster a discussion among Idaho’s youth.
David Morrison is a leader in Idaho’s beer and wine industry. He looks at the campaign as an opportunity to give back
“If you look at the popularity of YouTube right now is a huge thing and students are capable of doing that and it’s a great medium for them to use and reach out to other students,” said Morrison.
The deadline for entries is December 15th. Prizes include an i-Pad, flip cameras, and t-shirts just to name a few.
