Toyota TeenDrive365 Video Challenge

Learning to drive is one of the coolest times for a teen. But facts have shown it can be extremely dangerous. You have the power to inspire your fellow teens, maybe better than a teacher or a parent can, because you know what messages will be the most powerful. Create a 30-60 second video for your fellow teen drivers that highlights the importance of safe teen driving and you could win a grand contest prize of $15,000, or one of many other prizes.
Your video's message should be one that would resonate with you and your peers. If your friends - and teens throughout the United States - were going to watch one video that made them think twice about making bad decisions behind the wheel, what would that video be?
