Bridgestone’s annual Teens Drive Smart Video Contest has been launched for this year. The contest, which is part of Bridgestone’s teen safety education initiatives, is now accepting video entries until June 19. They are encouraging students ages 16-21, to create a short, 25 or 55 second, automotive safety-themed video that encourages their peers to make better decisions behind the wheel. Bridgestone will give out more than $35,000 in scholarships to the top winners with the first prize winner to receive a $20,000 college scholarship.
In addition, the winning video will be broadcast by Bridgestone Americas as a public service announcement on TV stations around the country. Ten finalists will win a new set of tires.
Entrants can submit their videos now through June 19 at www.teensdrivesmart.com and click on Video Contest.
The EndDD.org presentation includes last year’s winning video, “Almost technically legal”, by Josh Chambers of Harrisburg, PA. It has now been seen by over 50,000 teens and adults across the country in EndDD’s presentation alone since last year. Watch last year’s video here:
