Teens Speak Out Against Drinking

March 11th, 2009 by flanews

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation is enlisting teens in the fight against underage drinking.

The department asked students ages 14 20 to make videos about why drinking on spring break is a bad idea. Andrea Likens and Kiersten Lampe from Deltona High School won second place. Kiersten said she hopes their video will inspire her classmate to stay away from alcohol.

We really wanted to get the message out. Being in high school we hear about a lot sororities that go around our peers and what they do on spring break, so with this contest we though we could deliver a strong message about why not to drink and why its so important not to drink alcohol on spring break, said Kiersten.

The students won Best Buy gift cards. They plan to buy laptops for college with the prize. The winning videos can be seen at www.myfloridalicense.com.
