nSalt Lake school officials are concerned about energy drink distributors such as Red Bull appearing on school grounds and at high school sporting events where they pass out free energy drinks. School officials say the presence is unwanted and violates school district rules on advertising and promoting health and wellness. City Weekly asked Helge Seljaas of Arendal Kitchen Design in Sugar House if he thought it was just common business promotion or if the incidents had crossed any lines.

It’s definitely crossing some lines. I don’t think there should be any place in schools for that sort of advertising. I believe in having healthy children. My background is that I was a teacher, and this bothers me. I see no need to commercialize the education system to that degree.
