  • Create a TV commercial targeted at middle school students to warn them about the dangers of underage drinking. Win scholarship money and trophies, have fun, and gain valuable experience. The grand prize-winning commercial will be broadcast on TV and the team that created it will work with Pluto Post and the Detroit Auto Dealers Education Foundation to upgrade their spot for air.

    Open to all high school students in grades 9-12, not only those taking video production. Winners will be selected based on ideas.

    High school students nationally can participate; emphasis is placed on concept and the message, not on production values. Students are encouraged to use whatever video equipment is available to them. Teachers and principals, school audio/visual departments, parent and community leaders are urged to share their equipment and lend local support by promoting the program as a very unique scholarship competition that is fun to participate in and has a powerful impact on a serious problem.

    Commercials must be 30 seconds or longer or less, and your message must be about the dangers of underage drinking or the dangers of texting while driving. Middle school classrooms are the target audience.

    For specific video criteria and upload requirements, or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
