Enter the 2017 “No 2 Distracted Driving” Video Contest
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 71% of teens and young people say they have composed/sent SMS messages while driving. Fully 78% say they have read an SMS message while driving. And the University of Michigan Transporation Research Institute says 25% of teen drivers respond to a text message every time they’re behind the wheel.
For the fifth year in a row, local Hampton Roads High School students can join with Hall | MileOne Autogroup and Cox Communications in their commitment towards safe driving in the community by creating and submitting videos highlighting the dangers of distracted driving.
Just create your own video (two minutes or less) highlighting the dangers of distracted driving (texting while driving, talking on the phone, talking to their passengers, applying make-up, etc.) and upload it beginning October 2nd. Be creative. The individual student or student group whose video wins will receive a $3,500 cash prize and their associated high school will win a $3,500 cash prize. Click here for complete rules and contest details.
The submission deadline for entries is October 29th.
A panel of judges will select four finalists from all the entries received and over a three-week period in November visitors to No2DD.com will view the videos and vote for their favorites.
Good luck and safe driving.
