BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - Congratulations to the senior class at Tazewell High School, the winners of WVVA.com's seventh-annual Don't Drink PSA Contest!

The students receive $100 courtesy of SADD and Community Connections, as well as a host of prizes from area businesses for their Project Graduation.

The WVVA Traveling Trophy also returns to Tazewell.

Each of the five other schools that submitted an entry to this year's contest receive $50 for their Project Graduation.

Online voting counted as a portion of the winning formula, with a WVVA judging panel also scoring each entry on creativity, production and the effectiveness of the 'Don't Drink' message.

Greenbrier East won the online voting by two votes over Tazewell.

After the WVVA scoring, Tazewell was first place, followed by James Monroe in second and Greenbrier East in third.

This is the fourth time students from Tazewell have won the PSA Contest -- and their third win in a row.

WVVA thanks the students at Tazewell, Graham, Greenbrier East, PikeView, James Monroe and River View who participated in this year's contest and we look forward to receiving entries from seniors across the Two Virginias once again next year!
