Getting Real About Distracted Driving Scholarship
Scholarship Sponsored by Comedy Defensive Driving
Getting Real About Distracted Driving Scholarship: Design an advertisement that will educate the public about the dangers of distracted driving, and convince them with a clear call to action not to text and drive, drink and drive, eat and drive, or any other distraction you choose to focus on. You may focus on distracted driving as a whole, or pick a specific kind of distracted driving, but the message/focus of your advertisement must be clear. You will be judged based on the quality of the content, it's usability as an ad (billboard, commercial, PSA, poster, radio ad, etc.) and how it effectively convinces drivers to stay focused on the road. We are looking for creative, and helpful ads with maybe a bit of humor or irony.
