‘You’ll make someone cry:’ Grade 6 student wins Alberta liquor bag art contest

A Grade 6 student from Tofield School east of Edmonton has won an Alberta liquor bag design contest with a powerful message against impaired driving.

EDMONTON — A Grade 6 student from Tofield School east of Edmonton has won an Alberta liquor bag design contest with a powerful message against impaired driving.

Keana Hollman’s art features a drinking driver not paying attention to a road sign as someone is trying to cross.

A second picture shows a person grieving at a grave site.

Her message in bold red-and-orange letters reads: “If you drink and drive, you’ll make someone cry.”

Keana’s entry was chosen from more than 150 provincewide.

It is to be printed on one million brown paper bags distributed to liquor stores starting the May long weekend.

“My liquor bag states that you shouldn’t drink and drive because you can hurt yourself and others,” Keana said in a release Tuesday.

Submissions were judged based on originality, messaging and design.
