Please join us for the Vermont Highway Safety Alliance #802phonesdown!headsup! video contest award ceremony.
In conjunction with National Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April, the VHSA hosted the third #802phonesdown!headsup! video public service announcement contest. The contest was open to high-school students and designed to encourage young drivers and their friends and peers to avoid distracted driving. Cash prizes will be awarded to the creators of the five winning video PSAs.
The goal for contest entrants was to research this important issue and produce a compelling 25-second video that can enact change and spread the message to peers and the public that distracted driving is unacceptable. The VHSA hopes that videos produced by high-school students will offer a relatable perspective for other young drivers.
The contest cash prizes are sponsored by AT&T, Yankee Driving School, the Youth Safety Council of Vermont, Co-operative Insurance Companies, Midstate Dodge, and with support from the AAA New England
