Discovery Education and Toyota encourage you to assign your students an activity today that just might save a life: Ask them to check out the Top 10 Toyota Teen Driver Video Challenge videos and vote for their favorite.
In an effort to combat the startling fact that auto accidents are the leading cause of death among U.S. teens, high school students across the country submitted 60-90 second videos to promote safe driving among their peers. The Top 10 Finalist videos have been announced, and it’s now up to the public to vote for their favorite. The video that receives the most votes will win the Grand Prize of $15,000 and the opportunity to reshoot their video into a professional PSA with a Discovery Film Crew.
Whether it’s a homework assignment or a classroom activity, viewing these powerful peer-to-peer messages is the perfect way to reinforce the importance of safe driving. You, your students, and anyone in the community can vote daily–so return as often as you can to vote for your favorite video today through Wednesday, April 30th at 5pm EST.
