Traffic crashes are the leading killer of Minnesota teens — and distracted driving and low seat belt use are major factors for these tragedies.
Now, teens can do something about this — come up with a creative idea, and make a poster or video to encourage your peers to buckle up or pay attention.
Douglas County teenagers in grades 9–12 are eligible to participate in the 2013 poster and video contest sponsored by Douglas County Safe Communities Coalition.
Contest entries may focus on either the importance of seat belts or the importance of paying attention behind the wheel.
Teens could win $100 and see their poster/video used locally in various activities and events throughout Douglas County.
Entries are due Monday, March 25, 2013.
