"So I'm here with the century council teaching middle school kids about the dangers of underage drinking and teaching them to live a healthy lifestyle through our ask listen and learn program. And so that whole program is called ask, listen, learn, alcohol and kids don't mix," explains Century Council Field Director, Meghann Scherrer.

The Century Council came up to Montana all the way from Washington DC to teach these kids healthy life habits in a very fun way.

"But then we do the ask listen and learn game which is my favorite part where the kids with some student volunteers, today we had the student government leaders run in place on our Wii like game where they answer questions as a group. So we had all 700 kids answering true or false questions," says Scherrer.

On hand to share some of his life experiences with peers underage drinking was Attorney General Tim Fox.

"So they reach out to us and of course that is part of my job is to promote public safety and keep our young people safe and so it's a natural for me to be here and I love Great Falls," says Attorney General, Tim Fox.

The Attorney General says he hopes the students will share what they learn today about the dangers of underage drinking.

"Well I think they need to take away from this assembly that they can make healthy choices and good things can happen and they'll get positive results. They can feel good about themselves and they can spread the message to their peers and their family and other friends so that they also get the message," says Attorney General Fox.
