Duval County Public Schools, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and The SELF Movement Partner with Allstate Foundation to Launch Teen Safe Driving Video Contest
Local Organizations Team Up to Put Corporate Grant to Work in the Public Education System
JACKSONVILLE, FL (February 8, 2012) — Duval County Public Schools, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, and local non-profit organization, The SELF Movement, announced a partnership today to launch a Teen Safe Driving Video Contest in Duval County.
The contest offers individuals or teams of up to four students more than $3,000 in scholarships and prizes. The first-place winner will designate a Duval County public high school in advance to receive a $1,000 grant for a student-focused improvement project of the school’s choice.
The video contest provides an opportunity for teens to educate their peers on the dangers of distracted or impaired driving. Students are asked to create a 30-60 second video, which must be submitted to The SELF Movement’s YouTube channel by midnight on March 17, 2012. The public will select seven finalists from April 7 – 22, 2012 and a local panel of judges will select three additional finalists. The finalists and honorable mention candidates will be announced by May 5, 2012 in advance of a formal red carpet award ceremony later that month.
The Teen Safe Driving Video Contest will also raise funds to benefit the Duval County Public Schools’ driver education program. The financial support for both the video contest and updated driver education resource material will be provided in part by a $10,000 donation from the Allstate Foundation.
