BUTTE, Mont. -

42 Butte area students will receive scholarships tonight from a foundation dedicated to fighting underage drinking and drunk driving.

14-year-old Mariah McCarthy was killed by a teenage drunk driver back in 2007.

In an effort to educate the community and prevent underage drinking a non-profit group began a scholarship in her name.

Scholarships will go to teens who have been living up to "Mariah's Challenge."

Mariah's Challenge is a commitment minors make to avoid drinking and never ride with somebody who has been drinking.

For adults who are 21 to not drink and drive, and be a good role model for kids.

Payton and Taylor Buckley are seniors at Butte High School and will each be receiving scholarships Wednesday night.

"It's an honor, because not very many people get to be a part of it, because a lot of people are doing the same thing going out and drinking every weekend," Payton Buckley said.

Payton said it's not hard not drinking and enjoys spending her weekends at home and with friends.

The two sisters agree they "partying" life-style isn't for them.

"We're probably never going to, because of what happened to Mariah and and what happened to everyone that knew Mariah," Taylor Buckley said.

Over the past four years the Mariah Daye McCarthy Scholarship Foundation has given about $146,250 in scholarships.

The Buckley's plan to use their scholarship money towards college.

The two plan to attend the University of Montana Western in Dillon.
