Project Ignition. Teen Driver Safety Contest
Studying in high school? Want to spread the word about teen driver safety and win a prize? Team up with your friends and classmates to participate in Project Ignition. You can win up to a $9500 grant to implement campaigns on teen driver safety.
First of all, it’s fun: the sky is the limit for your creativity. During your campaign you can host events in your school and local community, produce public service announcements, prepare demonstrations, write articles and just do as many things as your imagination wishes to develop powerful and impactful messages about safe teen driving.
Secondly, it is sad to admit it, but car crashes remain the leading cause of death for teens in the United States. Given this opportunity to influence this bitter situation, you will be able to make a difference and save lives! You know better than a bunch of adults how best to deliver the message to your peers.
The effort has worked for 9 years and collected an impressive set of former student campaigns. Get inspired with the videos below. And if you are ready to participate don’t delay, applications are due November 15th, 2012.
