Nile Breweries Limited (NBL) has announced the top 100 participants in the Inter-University Smart Drinking Challenge.

The announcement was made via the Nile Breweries social media platforms.

“The long wait is over. The list of the top 100 participants in the Inter-University Smart Drinking Challenge is here,” UBL announced.

The students from the selected universities battled themselves in a creative extravaganza dubbed the ‘Inter-Uni Smart Drinking Challenge’ spanning four weeks with an aim of reducing the harmful use of alcohol among the youth and University students.

The first phase ended on 8th October.

UBL said they were surprised by the large numbers that turned up to participate in the campaign. 6,653 students registered for the campaign; however, 388 students successfully submitted their ideas on how to encourage responsible behaviour among Youth to the Smart drinking web portal.

“We are happy that this campaign has attracted such numbers given that it is the first of its kind. As NBL, we have always set ambitious Global Smart Drinking Goals for ourselves and initiatives such as these to support them,” said Clare Asiimwe, the Sustainability Manager at NBL and project manager of the campaign.

Speaking on the released lists, Asiimwe said that another vetting process will be undertaken to come up with the top 15 finalists for the challenge.
