Car crashes are the number one
cause of death for teens ages 16-19¹
Well, here is your chance to do something about it. The SELF Movement is partnering with The Allstate Foundation, Duval County Public Schools and The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office to bring awareness to this deadly statistic by hosting a Teen Safe Driving Video Contest.
So get a group of up to four high school students together to create a compelling 30-60 second video that promotes safe driving habits! Compete against high schools in Duval County for bragging rights, have your team’s video promoted on the web and win up to $2,000 in scholarships* for your team! The winning videos and school will be formally announced at The Second Annual Student O.S.C.A.R.S., a red carpet event tentatively scheduled for May 23rd.
Get started by following these steps:
Step 1: Create a 30-60 second Video
Create a video to inform and inspire your friends about the dangers of distracted or impaired driving. Creativity and educational value is more important than quality. It can be a parody, flip book or even sock puppets – seriously! As long as you get the message across in the video and follow the rules.
Step 2: Submit your videoFormat your video according to the guidelines, and upload it here to this site between February 19th and March 31st, 2013 at 11:59 PM.
Step 3: View and voteThe public will be allowed to view, vote on, and select forty (40) finalists from the video entries from April 6th to April 28th, and a panel of renowned judges will select the overall winners from the categories Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Costume Design, Best Film Editing, and Best Comedy. The top three videos as selected by the judges will be finalists for Best Picture and it is from these three videos that the scholarship prizes will be awarded. Submit your video early for the best chance to win, but even if you submit your video late in the contest you still have a chance at the grand prize!. See registration page.
