NOT4ME VIDEO CHALLENGE

NOT4ME VIDEO CHALLENGE

Greetings High School Teachers and Administrators:

This fall CBS 6, in collaboration with Loveland Distributing, will once again host a contest aimed at discouraging underage drinking called NOT4ME .

Any actively-enrolled high school student in the Richmond Metro Area may enter the contest by submitting an original 20-second public service video around the NOT4ME theme: “What do you love doing instead of drinking alcohol?”

Generous cash prizes are awarded to the top two contestants plus $1,000 to the winner’s teacher. The winning video will be broadcast live during the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on CBS and continue to run through June 2019.

Contest Starts: September 4, 2018.
Submission Deadline: December 2, 2018.

Our goal is to have at least three high schools per county involved to really impact our youth so please pass along this opportunity to your staff and students as soon as possible.
