NOT4ME VIDEO CHALLENGE

CBS 6 put out the call and area teens responded in a big way! Dozens of area students submitted 20 second videos explaining why underage drinking is not for them as part of the NOT4ME video challenge sponsored by Premium Distributors of Virginia and CBS 6.

Students wrote, starred-in and filmed an array of video entries to discouraging underage drinking.

Narrowing it down to five finalists was no easy task and now we need your help to choose the winner between now and Jan. 27.

Here are the top five entries:

The winning video will be broadcast during the 61st annual Grammy Awards on CBS on Feb. 10 and continue to run through June 2019.
