Group educates teens about distracted driving with video contest

Friend of the gay community – Bridgestone – has created Bridgestone Americas’ (BSA) Teens Drive Smart program which has launched a video contest that gives students the opportunity to present why they should earn a $5,000 grant. The money will be used to develop or expand teen driver safety programs at their school. To enter, a group of students must create a video 30 seconds to two minutes in length detailing a program they’ve organized to help students in their school become smarter drivers or describing a program they’d like to start but for which they do not have the resources. “As teens head back to school, it’s important for everyone to remember that, unlike their elective classes, safe driving is mandatory,” said Dan MacDonald, Vice President, Community and Corporate Relations, BSA. “With tight budgets now preventing many school administrations from expanding, updating or starting a teen driver safety program, administrators are looking for creative ways to share a safe driving message with their students. The Road Show Rally is such a program.”
