Car crashes are the #1 killer of young people in the United States and Impact Teen Drivers (ITD) is a non-profit organization that is working to combat car crashes caused by distracted driving. ITD is currently running the Just Drive Contest which gives students the opportunity to share their creative solution to ending deaths due to car crashes and potentially win up to $5,000!
Students ages 14-22 are invited to create original 30-second public service announcements that showcase their solutions or strategies to fix the problem of distracted driving. Thanks to support from NJM Insurance Group, a student in the individual category can win up to $5,000 in the form of an educational grant, according to their website.
Another category is for teachers/advisors to participate in a distracted driving social media campaign with their students. In that category, teachers can win up to $10,000 for their classroom/school.
The contest opened in January, and closes on Sunday, October 31, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. (ET). Then online voting will run from November 1-7, 2021.
