PHOENIX -- Students at several Phoenix high schools are creating public service announcements highlighting the dangers of underage drinking.

At Desert Vista High School in Ahwatukee, students used their 60 seconds to show the story of teens getting busted by the cops.

"Being arrested would seem like your life is over at our age," says junior Jordan Young. "Your freedom is taken away and you can't do anything."

Classmate Julia Bulin says drinking leads young people to do stupid things.

"You can have so much more fun without drinking," said Bulin.

Desert Vista is among several schools creating and entering their videos in a contest organized by the Phoenix Police Department. The winners will be awarded $5,000, while second and third place finishers will receive $3,000 and $2,000 respectively. You can view them here.
