GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - More than 750 teens from around the tri-state area are in Grand Forks for a motivational conference.

The annual Northern Lights Students Against Destructive Decisions conference provides teens with information and tools to address issues affecting them.

Keynote speakers address issues such as underage drinking, bullying and drug use.

Organizers say this is an important event that has grown over the years.

"In every school we go to there are teens that are looking for an excuse to make a decision that they know is right as long as they know they're not alone. SADD provides them with that network to let them know they're not alone," Northern Lights SADD coordinator Lee Erickson said.

The three-day event runs through tomorrow.
