CBS 6 put out the call and area teens responded in a big way! Dozens and dozens of area students submitted 20 second videos explaining why underage drinking is simply, not for them as part of the NOT4ME video challenge sponsored by Loveland Distributing and CBS 6.
Anthony Lofton Jr. from Varina High School won the top prize in the NOT4ME video challenge with his video, "Grab Your Future." Anthony scored a $1500 cash grant and his teacher, Lindsey Martin, won a $1000 cash grant.
Spencer Dunn from Lee-Davis High School came in second place. His video, "It Just Gets in the Way," earned him a $750 cash grant.
Congratulations to all of our finalists. And a special thank you to all area students who uploaded videos explaining why underage drinking is not for them.
