Safe Grad Video Wins $1250 Prize

Once again, grade 12 students at Blackville School submitted an awareness video to the Safe Grad Initiative sponsored by Alcool NB Liquor (ANBL) in cooperative with the New Brunswick Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

This year's video was recognized with a $1250 prize to help fund Safe Grad activities.

The video explores how drinking impairs judgement and perception which can lead to dangerous consequences. It compares the reality of the situation to what the drunk driver thinks he is experiencing. The narration in the video is presented without any dialogue.

The students who produced the video are Gregory Campbell, Aaron Dunn, Riley Keenan and Rayna MacVicar.
