Submit your video along with your contact information on or before March 17, 2014. We will not accept entries after that date. Don't wait until the last minute.
Finalists will be notified by April 25, 2014 and will be chosen based on criteria provided in the application. Winners will be chosen and announced in May 2014. The winning video will be selected by Project Yellow Light along with associates from the Ad Council, Mazda, National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS), VCU Brandcenter, and The Martin Agency.
All the videos will become property of Project Yellow Light/Hunter Garner Scholarship. We request this so we may use your video to promote safe driving to a broader audience and draw wide attention to this important topic. We may also share your video on the website or other digital platform (whether you’re the winner of the scholarship or not). We are hoping to share these messages with young adults across the country.
Your mission: Create a video EITHER exactly :25 or exactly :55 seconds.
Your audience: Young drivers who are new to the road.
Your topic: Stop distracted driving. And like drivers, videos are better when they are focused, so pick one type of distraction as the subject of your video:
Why: Prevent serious car crashes and deaths.
How: You have creative license. Just be sure it's in good taste and that you DON'T film yourself or anyone else driving while distracted.
