Student Safe Driving Messages Can Pay Off with Fall Create Real Impact Contest
Date:8/8/2019

Artistic efforts to prevent reckless and distracted driving can earn students cash in the 2019 Fall Create Real Impact contest from Impact Teen Drivers and California Casualty. A total of $15,000 in academic grant prizes will be available.

The equation is simple: teen drivers are more likely to be involved in a deadly crash caused by texting, interacting with passengers or just not paying attention behind the wheel, but they are the best messengers to their peers about the dangers of inattentive driving.

The Create Real Impact Contest challenges students ages 14-22 to make a difference in the battle to stop unnecessary crashes, the number one killer of teens in the United States. They can submit creative works showcasing solutions to reckless and distracted driving at http://www.createrealimpact.com. The entry deadline is October 5, 2019.

Grand prizes of $1,500 will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Video
  • Music
  • Art
  • Creative writing
  • Spanish Language
  • Sports team video

There will also be awards for schools with the most entries and for entries with the most online votes.

The Create Real Impact contest was initiated in 2009 as a proactive solution to the deadly epidemic of inattentive driving by teens. Research shows distraction is a key factor in almost 60 percent of crashes involving drivers ages 16 to 19. Empowering messages convincing other teens to adopt safer driving attitudes and avoid the tragic result of bad choices behind the wheel can save lives.

“I have confidence teens can change the culture of driving to one that is distraction free – much like earlier generations did with seat belts,” said Kelly Browning, Ph.D., Executive Director, Impact Teen Drivers. “The Create Real Impact Contest provides an opportunity for teens to lead the conversation by getting involved and stopping the number one killer of people their age.”

Students aged 14-22 can enter and find motivation from past winners at http://www.createrealimpact.com. The submission deadline for the 2019 Fall Create Real Impact contest is October 5.

Judges will determine the grand prize awards October 5-7, with online voting open October 6-11. Winners will be notified around October 20.
