Due December 13th, 2019 - Distractions and other unsafe behaviors behind the wheel can create dangerous situations for teen drivers and their passengers. This year's contest focuses on the teen driver and how they take responsibility for ensuring a safe driving experience. Engage the viewer in positive examples in your video of how the driver can influence a positive decision to drive responsibly to avoid distractions, prevent breaking the law or avoid a crash -- and have a positive outcome.

In other words, show a creative way a teen driver and the people around them can influence a positive decision to drive responsibly to avoid distractions, prevent breaking the law or avoid a crash -- and have a positive outcome.

High school students produce a creative, unique and effective video public service announcement. Video can be up to 45 seconds in length. Your video can be less than 45 seconds, but it can not exceed 45 seconds.

This Year's Theme:
Take the Wheel, Take Responsibility

It must also address one specific Connecticut teen driving law. The PSA must have a multicultural or diversity component because driving involves teens from all backgrounds, including race, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, culture, etc. Bi-lingual/multi-cultural videos are welcomed and encouraged. Teams of students are limited to a maximum of 5 members, including the student director. The PSA must feature at least two teens, either as real-life actors, or as an illustration using motion graphics or animation. Be creative!
