North Dakota teenagers can win cash prizes for creating a 30-second traffic safety video or a billboard design.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation, AAA North Dakota and the North Dakota Safety Council are sponsoring the 2nd annual NDTeenDrivers Traffic Safety Contest.
The contest is open to teens ages 14 to 19 enrolled in a North Dakota school. Students may work individually or in a group of up to five students. They need to focus on distracted driving, underage drinking and driving, or seat belt use.
In addition to creating a video or billboard design, each entry is required to conduct one traffic safety event at their school. Contestants have the chance to win up to $1,000 and a $1,000 traffic safety grant for their school.
â€œI think this contest is a great way to get teens involved in traffic safety and focus on their driving behaviors,â€ Mark Nelson, DOT safety director, said in a statement.
All participants must register by 5 p.m. CT Feb. 11 to participate in the contest. All participants in a group must attend the same school. Once the registration form is complete, teens may begin creating their traffic safety video or billboard.
