WEST PALM BEACH, FL -- The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation is enlisting teens in the fight against underage drinking.
The department asked students ages 14 - 20 to make videos about why drinking on spring break is a bad idea.
Andrea Likens and Kiersten Lampe from Deltona High School won second place. Kiersten says she hopes their video will inspire her classmate to stay away from alcohol.
Lampe said, "We really wanted to get the message out. Being in high school we hear about a lot sororities that go around our peers and what they do on spring break, so with this contest we though we could deliver a strong message about why not to drink and why its so important not to drink alcohol on spring break."
The students won Best Buy gift cards. They plan to buy laptops for college with the prize.
