The National Road Safety Foundation, with Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and media company, is looking for ideas from teens to help educate their peers and others about the risks of walking while using a mobile device. Entries are now open for the 6th annual Drive2Life PSA Contest, under the theme “Distracted Walking = Dangerous Walking.”

The winner will receive a $1,000 prize and an all expenses-paid trip to New York to work with an Emmy Award-winning TV director to turn his or her idea into a public service message that will be broadcast nationwide next May during Global Youth Traffic Safety Month. Two runners-up in each grade category (grades 6–8, 9–12) will each receive $500.
