Passengers who get into cars with impaired drivers can be putting their lives in jeopardy—this includes teen passengers riding with friends who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or who are driving drowsy.
Now students in grades 6-12 can help promote passenger and driver safety in impaired-driving situations by entering the Drive2Life Contest.
To enter, each participating student must create a storyboard or written script for a 30-second public service announcement (PSA).
The PSA must feature a scenario showing how teen passengers and drivers can prevent, avoid, or get out of an impaired-driving situation.

Entries will be judged on the following criteria:
The Grand Prize winner receives $1,000 and will embark on a trip to New York City, where a professional film crew will transform the student's vision into a 30-second commercial! Four runners-up (two from grades 6-8, and two from grades 9-12) each will receive $500.
The teacher of each student winner will receive a classroom subscription to a relevant Scholastic magazine (30 student editions and one teacher's guide) for the 2014-2015 school year.
See Official Rules for details. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited.
