Drug use and unsafe sex have been tackled by students at North Herts College to raise awareness of the issues.
Herts County Council asked young people to come up with a campaign to highlight the dangers of misusing substances and being sexually unsafe.
The winning idea – Choose Your Ending – came from North Hertfordshire College students Billie Willicombe, Charlotte Smith, Amy Charles and Jodie Shelldrick.
Their campaign is about empowering young people to make positive choices for a better future, with the four girls planning to visit secondary schools across Herts to lead interactive sessions on the subject.
The council’s Jo Mayer said: “We believe the best way to educate, inform and raise awareness to young people about these issues is by involving young people themselves. They know best what young people will respond to.”

Student Amy said: “There’s hardly any information out there about teenage pregnancy, considering Stevenage has one of the highest ratings, so the campaign is important.”
