TeenDrive365 Video Challenge Contest

Deadline: February 28, 2018

Learning to drive is one of the coolest times for a teen, but facts have shown it can also be extremely dangerous. The first year after a teen gets their license will be one of the most dangerous years of their life. Actions such as talking on the phone or just talking to your friends in the car, not wearing a seatbelt, driving at night, texting, eating, adjusting the radio, and just plain inexperience all result in car crashes being the leading cause of teenage death in the United States. Toyota believes that you have the power to inspire your fellow teens, maybe better than a teacher or a parent can, because you know what messages will be the most powerful. That's why the TeenDrive365 Video Challenge empowers teens to put that vision on camera and save teen lives. Approach your video submission as your chance to find a message that would resonate with you and your peers. If your friends-and teens throughout the United States-were going to watch ONE video that made them think twice about making bad decisions behind the wheel, what would that video be? This is what Toyota is asking YOU to submit. Nine awards ranging from $1,000 to $15,000 will be awarded.
