The eighth annual Project Yellow Light scholarship competition is now open. The contest is an opportunity for high school and college students across the U.S. to create TV, radio or billboard public service advertisements (PSAs) to educate their peers about the dangers of distracted driving, especially texting and driving.
Billboard submissions are due March 1. Radio and video submissions are due April 1. Students who win will receive scholarship funding and the opportunity for national media exposure for their winning entries.
Project Yellow Light was created in 2007 by the family of Hunter Garner to honor his memory after his death in a car crash at age 16.
This year, AT&T’s It Can Wait and Apparent Insurance are supporting the competition. Julie Garner, mom of Hunter Garner and founder of Project Yellow Light said, “We’re excited to be entering our eighth year of this national competition with our amazing partners; and even more so by the addition of two noteworthy new alliances … These relationships will significantly amplify our reach and help us save more lives.”
