COURAGEOUS PERSUADERS VIDEO COMPETITION:

Courageous Persuaders is a peer-to-peer national scholarship competition that invites high school students in grades 9-12 to create a 30-second commercial to warn middle school students about the dangers of underage drinking and the dangers of texting while driving. High school students can enter separate videos in both categories. The program was built upon the premise that high school students have a tremendous influence on younger middle school peers, and with constructive messages, can positively impact decisions and potentially even save lives. Over $26,000 in scholarships and awards. Video entry deadline is February 9, 2017.
