[February 11, 2013]  CHICAGO -- The Illinois Liquor Control Commission is sponsoring its first "Don't Be Sorry" Youth Art Contest, and the deadline for entering submissions is Friday at 5 p.m. Teens who enter the contest will have an opportunity for their art creations to be recognized statewide and will also encourage adults to do the right thing in not providing alcohol to minors. The ILCC is seeking contest applicants to submit a logo and slogan.

"The winning design will receive statewide exposure and will be unveiled this spring at press events," says Gloria L. Materre, ILCC executive director. "We hope to receive many creative submissions that represent the message of preventing underage drinking."
