CBS 6 put out the call, and area teens responded with dozens of 20 second videos explaining why underage drinking is not for them. As part of the NOT4ME video challenge sponsored by Loveland Distributing and CBS 6, students wrote, starred-in and filmed video entries to discourage underage drinking.

The winning video will be broadcast during the 60th annual Grammy Awards on CBS on January 28th and continue to run through June 2018.
