High school students in Clackamas County invited to enter safe driving media contest

High school students in Clackamas County are invited to participate in the “Drive to Zero Posters and Coasters” safe driving media contest. The goal of the contest is for students to create artwork that promotes safe driving to reach out to others in the community.

Patty McMillan, Clackamas County Drive to Zero Program Coordinator, says, "Traditionally, driver education has come from parents, educators and safety professionals. Now, high school students are invited to create their own safe driving media to educate their peers and community."

Entries must be submitted by March 15, 2018.

All entries must be accompanied by a release form that can be found on the Drive to Zero website. Students under age 18 year on March 15, 2018, will need a parent or guardian to sign.

Contest details are available on our website. Questions should be directed to Drive to Zero staff at 503-742-4661 or drivetozero@clackamas.us.

Student artwork or written messages should focus on risk factors such as speed, distracted driving or impaired driving; or on prevention strategies such as seat belt use, parent support or eliminating distractions. Positive, uplifting messages are encouraged to reflect the need to drive with respect and courtesy.

All entries will be judged on creativity, message impact and promotional appeal, and will be eligible to be used for outreach by the county. The students who create the top three entries will each win cash prizes ($300 for first place, $200 for second place and $100 for third place).

The safe driving media contest is sponsored by Clackamas County Drive to Zero and State Farm Insurance.
