Students from Oaklands College were victorious in a film competition to spread awareness of road safety.
They took home the top award at Herts Fire and Rescue Service’s inaugural Student Road Safety Awards.
The students created a short film, entitled Think Before You Drink, to tie in with this year’s Driving Home for Christmas campaign.
The short film follows a group of young friends meeting up for a Christmas drink, before one of the group decides to drive home.
The film was voted overall winner by the panel of judges, which included chief fire officer Darryl Keen.
Darryl said: “We saw a range of high-quality videos produced by students from across the county.
“Ultimately, Think Before You Drink demonstrated creativity in its style with a clarity of message that will make viewers think twice before getting behind the wheel after drinking.”

Director of the winning video, Evie Gallagher said: “We feel fabulous to have won overall at the Student Road Safety Awards.
“I feel privileged to have worked with such wonderful people.
“Our film aims to raise awareness of both the dangers of drink driving and the role the fire and rescue service play in road traffic collisions.”
Other students were recognised at the awards, which were supported by the Hertfordshire Road Safety Partnership.
