“As a teen, how do you talk to your friends, parents, and even your siblings about the very real dangers of reckless and distracted driving?
That is the very question Impact Teen Drivers began asking in 2007 while educating young drivers in schools about poor decision making behind the wheel. Teens across the United States all said the same thing, “let US do the messaging.” Impact Teen Drivers created the Create Real Impact Contest to ask young people, ages 14-22, to show how they would talk about this very real problem.
Young people enter to win cash and prizes by showcasing art, music, video and creative writing to address reckless and distracted driving and solve the problem. It’s that simple. This unique opportunity allows for a safe and expressive platform to speak out and create real impact. In 2011, over 100,000 votes were cast on over 2,000 submitted entries – all with a network of friends, loved ones, and young drivers and passengers raising their awareness to stop distracted and reckless driving behaviors.
Now it’s time for a new contest and even more entries and votes. If you’re eligible to enter, what would you say and how would you say it? Three easy steps to enter: Make it, Upload it, Submit it.”
