Create Real Impact Contest Fall 2014 is ON!

Calling all students ages 14-22: 

Reckless and distracted driving is THE number one killer of teens in the United States, and it is a unique epidemic in that it is entirely preventable. As an organization, our sole focus is putting an end to this trend of senseless young deaths, and we work to achieve this through a multifaceted approach. 

At the center of this approach is the philosophy that good decision-making is the antidote—empowering teens and young adults to make conscious commitments to safe driving. First and foremost, we encourage every driver to make the personal promise to give driving the attention it deserves. We also offer a public platform for young people to share their safe-driving strategies though. What does good decision-making look like in relation to safe driving?

Create Real Impact ( is an opportunity to share your solution to reckless and distracted driving through the medium of your choice video, music, creative writing, or artwork. When you share your brilliant lifesaving strategies with the world (by October 10th, via the worldwide web), you also enter to win educational grants.
