The 2014 Celebrate My Drive contest might have ended, but the fight to stop the #1 killer of teens continues! Thanks to the generosity of State Farm, Celebrate My Drive has partnered with Teens in the Driver Seat to continue spreading the message about safe and responsible driving. Qualified schools will be notified and have the opportunity to register and sign up with Teens in the Driver Seat for additional resources.
Teens in the Driver Seat is a free peer-to-peer driving safety program for high school students that focuses exclusively on teen’s top 5 risks. In addition to inexperience, they are:
- Driving at night
- Speeding and street racing
- Distractions, such as cell phones/texting and too many teen passengers
- Low seat belt use
- Alcohol use
Selected schools will receive free resources, information and technical support for their team, designed to help schools spread safe driving messages for the remainder of the school year through a variety of potential outreach activities.
Through Teens in the Driver Seat, there are plenty of additional opportunities for schools to win prizes for their teams:
- Driving the Message Contest: A poster, video and t-shirt contest to encourage teens to speak up and save a life. This year we are giving away almost $6,000 in cash to schools who submit winning entries!
- Catch the CRZY! : 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 the dangerous teen driving habit of distracted driving in your community. 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 with a gift card and TDS Cup points!
- Teens in the Driver Seat Cup Contest : The contest awards TDS schools with points for spreading the message about safe driving and saving lives. Points are awarded for being active and participating in the program. How easy is that?!? Well, get your game face on and take a look at the rules and point system for Celebrate My Drive Schools and get McCrackin; there are points to be earned and cash and prizes to be won!
