The Specifics

Vote for your favorite Texting and Driving Prevention PSA, created by high school seniors across the country. All videos were finalists in the 2012 Project Yellow Light Scholarship competition.

Project Yellow Light is a scholarship competition designed to bring about change. The competition’s mission is to encourage other teens to develop and embrace safe driving habits. Specifically – don’t text and drive.

The creator of the winning video via the GOOD Maker challenge will win one $400 college scholarship.

Consideration for video submission is by invite only. Invitees may submit their video from May 31 to June 14, noon Pacific Time. From June 14 to July 12, we’ll open it up to a public vote. Rally your colleagues and friends to get behind your effort and join the GOOD community in selecting the winner.

While judging the videos, keep in mind the following criteria:

  • Ability to capture attention of others — specifically, the attention of their peers
  • Ability to persuade others to alter driving habits — the video must resonate with teens and move them to be better drivers
  • Clarity of message — there needs to be an understandable, well structured message in the video with a clear call-to-action
  • Creative expression – the video should show creativity and personal expression
  • Quality of Video — videos should have good production quality (images, sound, etc). Video doesn’t have to be polished, but needs to be well put together.
