Safe Streets. Smart Trips.

2016 High School Video Contest

Video Shorts – Contest Submission Guidelines

Deadline: Friday, September 23, 2016 AT 5PM

Calling all Massachusetts high school students!

Lead the way in promoting safe walking, bicycling, and driving behaviors across Massachusetts with an added message of the benefits of active and healthy transportation. Write and produce a one minute public service announcement video showcasing what YOU are doing to keep our streets safe whether you walk, bike, or drive.

Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States. In 2013, six teens between the ages of 16-19 years old were killed every day due to roadway fatalities. These roadway fatalities affect teen drivers, walkers, and bicyclists as you all interact with various modes no matter which way you choose to travel.

Write and produce up to three one minute videos (one per transportation mode) to showcase what YOU are doing to keep to our streets safe in order to see a world where there are no pedestrian or bicycle injuries or fatalities. For example: if you are a pedestrian, what are you doing to make sure that you keep bicyclists, drivers, and yourself safe as you move about the roadways. Keep in mind that your video may be used as a public service announcement to help keep you, your friends, and other teens and community members in Massachusetts safer on the streets.
