Teens, encourage safe driving among your peers.
Due February 23rd, 2017 - Learning to drive is one of the coolest times for a teen. But facts have shown it can be extremely dangerous. Actions such as talking on the phone or just talking to your friends in the car, not wearing a seatbelt, driving at night, texting, eating, adjusting the radio, and just plain inexperience all result in car crashes being the leading cause of teenage death in the United States.
You have the power to inspire your fellow teens, maybe better than a teacher or a parent can, because you know what messages will be the most powerful. Create a 30-60 second video for your fellow teen drivers that highlights the importance of safe teen driving and you could win $15,000, or one of 14 other prizes!
Approach your video submission as your chance to find a message that would resonate with you and your peers. If your friends—and teens throughout the United States—were going to watch ONE video that made them think twice about making bad decisions behind the wheel, what would that video be?
