You can make a difference and help save young lives through the Keep the Drive High School Journalism Awards.
About the contest
The Allstate Foundation sponsors the annual Keep the Drive High School Journalism Awards to encourage teens to educate their peers teen safe driving. Students may choose to write an article or create a broadcast piece that focuses on the teen safe driving topic of their choice (i.e. the dangers of distracted driving, passenger safety or the importance of teen safe driving laws). Check out the Story Ideas page for ideas to get you started.
Student journalists may enter either the Print Category or Broadcast Category, but not both. Print Category submissions are articles written and published by students in high school newspapers. Broadcast Category submissions are video segments in journalistic style written and produced by students and aired within the high school.
During the 2012-2013 school year, the Keep the Drive Journalism Awards asks that teens specifically address a teen safe driving topic of your choice. All stories and news segments must incorporate this topic and include the website www.KeeptheDrive.com. Keep the Drive is a great resource for you and your friends to learn more about smart driving and ways to get involved.
We will be rewarding teens with a total of $7,500 through six awards (three in each category)!All entries are due by March 1, 2013 and must mention the website KeeptheDrive.com.
