SAVE THE DATE: Student Winners of ‘Keeping It Safe’ Video Contest to be Honored on May 1

The Montgomery County Department of Liquor Control (DLC) will announce the seven student winners of its annual Keeping it Safe (KIS) video contest at a ceremony on Wednesday, May 1, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at Montgomery County’s Public Safety Headquarters, located at 100 Edison Park Drive in Gaithersburg.

The DLC received 44 submissions from middle and high school groups who created 30-second public service announcements to educate students about the risks of underage drinking. In addition to trophies and award certificates, the winners will receive cash prizes of up to $1,000 for their schools. The winning videos will be distributed at schools, posted on YouTube and shared with several local television channels.

Founded in 1992, KIS is a coalition of County departments, local organizations and concerned residents who work together to deter underage alcohol use and reduce access of alcohol to youth. For more information about the KIS coalition, and to view last year’s winning videos, visit the KIS website.
