The Miami County Safe Communities Coalition, through the support of State Farm®, is challenging high school students to create a public service announcement billboard to educate drivers about the dangers of distracted driving.

Students are encouraged to create their own billboard artwork using whatever media they are most comfortable with, including graphic design, drawing, painting, photography, etc. The design must be scan capable if the media used is not digital. We are also requesting that students use facts and statistics found on www.distraction.gov, or through their own research, to demonstrate the importance of keeping your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

A panel of judges will select the winning entry based on creativity, originality, and how well the importance of not driving distracted is communicated. A winner will be selected and announced during a special press conference, and the artwork will be shared through various social media platforms for Miami County Safe Communities coalition and partners. The winning entry will be featured on a Miami County billboard for everyone to see to highlight National Teen Driver Safety week, which will take place from October 16–22, 2022. The winner will receive a $500.00 cash prize. 

Details:

-Any high school student may enter (Grades 9-12).
-All applicants MUST complete an entry form to participate in the contest. Applicants must have permission from a parent or guardian to participate if under 18 years of age.
-Winning entry must be able to be presented in the required design specifications.
-Winning entry will be awarded a $500 prize.
