TeenDrive365 Video Challenge: Learning to drive is one of the coolest times for a teen. But facts have shown it can also be extremely dangerous. The first year after a teen gets their license will be one of the most dangerous years of their life. Actions such as talking on the phone or just talking to your friends in the car, not wearing a seatbelt, driving at night, texting, eating, adjusting the radio, and just plain inexperience all result in car crashes being the leading cause of teenage death in the United States. But we believe that you have the power to inspire your fellow teens, maybe better than a teacher or a parent can, because you know what messages will be the most powerful. That’s why the TeenDrive365 Video Challenge empowers teens to put that vision on camera and save teen lives. If your friends—and teens throughout the United States—were going to watch ONE video that made them think twice about making bad decisions behind the wheel, what would that video be? Go to this website for more information and to enter by March 7th.
