Artwork sought to dissuade drinking by minors

CHICAGO – Teenagers are being asked to come up with artwork and slogans encouraging adults in Illinois not to provide alcohol to minors.

The Illinois Liquor Control Commission says the deadline for entries is Feb. 15. The winning submissions will go on display across the state later this year.

It's the commission's first contest of its kind. It's being called the "Don't Be Sorry Youth Art Contest."

The commission's executive director, Gloria Materre, said the competition is part of an ongoing campaign to prevent underage drinking.

Winners will be selected by a panel that includes safety experts, police and school officials. It also includes members of industry associations, including the Associated Beer Distributors of Illinois and the Illinois Licensed Beverage Association.
