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. Prizes for winning videos include an IPad, IPod, and t-shirts to name a few.
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.
