That is the very question Impact Teen Drivers began asking in 2007 while educating young drivers in schools about poor decision making behind the wheel. Teens across the United States all said the same thing, "let US do the messaging." Impact Teen Drivers created the Create Real Impact Contest to ask young people, ages 14-22, to show how they would talk about the number one killer of teens in America.
Young people enter to win cash and prizes by showcasing art, music, video and creative writing to address reckless and distracted driving and solve the problem. It's that simple. This unique opportunity allows for a safe and expressive platform to speak out and create real impact. In 2015, 2,000 submitted entries representing all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Over 100,000 votes were cast through a network of friends, loved ones, and young drivers and passengers raising awareness to stop distracted and reckless driving behaviors.
Now it's time for a new contest and even more entries and votes. If you're eligible to enter, what would you say and how would you say it? Three easy steps to enter: Make it, Upload it, Submit it.
Once by your friends and family Mar 18 – Mar 24
The Top Vote Getter in each category wins prizes.
Second by the judges Mar 25 - Mar 26
Judges will determine the Grand Prize Winners, Spanish Language Winner, and Sports Theme Winner based on the following criteria: 25% concept/creativity, 25% execution of the idea, and 50% effectiveness of the message. Online voting in no way influences the decisions of the panel of judges.
