    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.
