Catch the CRZY!

CRZY webCatch the CRZY! is a 9-week activity (3 weeks to complete a pre-observation, 3 weeks of messaging, and 3 weeks to complete a post-observation) to help curb dangerous teen driving habits in your community. In the fall we take on seat belts and in the spring, it’s distracted driving. Observations are done to get a picture of the problem and again to see if your team made a difference. It’s CRZY fun and your team gets rewarded!

TDS Cup points are awarded for completing the observations and returning them, plus you get your normal points when you complete activities (during Step 2) and report them. Plus, once everything is complete, your team gets a $100 gift card to celebrate your accomplishments.

*We now have a Junior High version of Catch the CRZY!*
