The Draw the Line Coalition, an anti-underage drinking group, is sponsoring a video contest open to all Lawrence residents, to create a 30-second video that discourages underage drinking. The winner will receive $750.
Jen Jordan, a member of the coalition, said the group wanted to come up with a fun, creative project this summer as part of their advocacy campaign. Posters for the contest have been distributed to area schools.
"Kids are starting to talk about it," said Jordan of the contest that's open until May 19.
The winning video will be featured on local television. For more information about the contest, visit http://bit.ly/15BvUaQ.
