Teen Driver Safety Campaign

Teen Drivers

There are a number of issues that are important to teen drivers.  When it comes to drinking and driving, aggressive driving and texting and driving, Canadian teens have strong opinions and their opinions matter.

VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! Canadian secondary school students have produced their videos for the Is It Worth It? Teen Driver Safety Campaign.   Over 50 submissions have been narrowed down to the TOP 16 VIDEOS.  As a judge for this video competition, I can say the talent, creativity and messaging these Canadian Youth brought to the table was really impressive.

Listen to their message of safe driving and the answers they have to Is It Worth It?

Vote for your favourite video now.  You can vote for your favourite video once a day, every day, until May 10th, 2013. The winners receive

  • 1st place receives $3000
  • 2nd place receives $1500
  • 3rd place receives $500

The videos are short so it won’t take long to vote.  By supporting these talented Canadian high school students and giving their voices a chance to be heard, we can help spread the news on making smart decisions behind the wheel.

The IS IT WORTH IT? Teen Driver Safety Campaign aims to prevent injury and save lives by reducing distracted, impaired and aggressive driving.

  1. I think this scheme is a great initiative not only to increase road safety but also for young people to do something creative. I think a similar scheme over here in the UK would go down a storm.

    • Thanks for your response Barry! This campaign and video competition specifically have been a great way to engage youth and launch a road safety conversation. Let me know if this initiative does end up rolling out in the UK too. Thanks for reading my blog and please visit again soon.
