Abbotsford Christian School takes third in video contest

The ACS submission “This is Our Future” depicted the future lives achieved by a group of teens based on their choices

Abbotsford Christian School (ACS) placed third in BCAA’s recent Dry Grad Video Challenge and won $2,000 for the school’s dry grad event.

Last September, BCAA called on Grade 12 students from across B.C. and the Yukon to produce 90-second videos that encourage other teens to make responsible driving choices and never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Videos were viewed by a judging panel of post-secondary students and professionals in the fields of road and public safety, broadcasting, video production, and marketing.

The top five videos were placed online for public voting.

The ACS submission “This is Our Future” depicted the future lives achieved by a group of teens based on their choices, including the life that could have been achieved by one of them if not for making the choice to drive impaired.

Top prize of $6,000 went to Hugh McRoberts Secondary in Richmond, and second prize of $4,000 went to Whistler Secondary.
