REVISED STORY - Correction: The contest is jointly sponsored by The Vancouver Sun, The Gang Task Force, CBC and Taxi Advertising.

Vancouver students from Killarney and Templeton Secondary are amongst finalists in the Teens Against Gangs (TAG) Public Service Announcement video contest.

Of the ten finalists, Killarney Secondary School has four videos and Templeton Secondary has one. The other five finalists are comprised of videos from secondary schools in Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey, and West Vancouver.
