Mission: Have your students create a video PSA that is exactly: 25 seconds OR exactly: 55 seconds
Audience: Teen Drivers and Passengers
Topic: The PSA should raise awareness of teen driver risk in relation to the number (and limiting the number) of passengers in a vehicle. So, encourage your students to be inventive and create a message that will stand out, be remembered, and make a positive difference.
Why: A number of studies have shown that passengers substantially increase the risk of crashes for young, novice drivers. Teenage drivers are two-and-a-half times more likely to engage in one or more potentially risky behaviors when driving with just one teenage peer. The PSA goal is to develop and send teen-friendly messages to prevent traffic crashes and save lives.
How: Your students have creative license. Just be sure their messages are in good taste and that they DON'T film themselves or anyone else while driving or in unsafe conditions.
When: Video submissions are due on or before Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 11:59:59 PM ET.
Awards: Cash prizes will be awarded directly to the individual or group of top three submissions:
