It is so important for teens these days to feel empowered, and we can help by encouraging them and their peers to avoid distracted and other dangerous driving behaviors. This contest is a great way for teens to be positive role models, share positive messages with their friends and compete for some great prizes at the same time.
The Safety Scholars Video Contest is accepting submissions until June 24, and the first place prize is a $10,000 scholarship! Any teen in the US or Canada (excluding Quebec) between the ages of 16 and 21 can enter by creating a 25 or 55-second video about any issue in teen driver safety, and uploading it to www.safetyscholars.com. The top 10 finalists will be posted online, and the videos with the most votes will win prizes. The winning videos will also be turned into public service announcements; the winning 2010 entries have already been aired 20,000 times, so teens and their families across the country are seeing these possibly-life saving messages.
