Distracted driving contestHey, students: have you created your hip T-shirt design or produced your rocking music video for GEICO’s Distracted Driving Contest yet? If not, there’s still time to enter – but not much! The deadline is Friday, Jan. 24!

Young artists, ages 6-18, are invited to submit a T-shirt design that emphasizes the message about the dangers of distracted driving. The design can be hand-drawn or computer-generated, and can be submitted online through the GEICO T-shirt Design Contest website. 

And for our fellow filmmakers, GEICO wants teens, ages 14-18, to produce their own music video that showcases the dangers of distracted driving. Contestants must use one of the pre-recorded soundtracks on the music contest website.

A $1,500 cash prize will be awarded to the music video winner and a $500 cash prize will go to the T-shirt design winner. Finalists will also win cash prizes, too.

So what exactly is distracted driving? Here are some messages you can use in your work:

  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on the phone while driving
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Adjusting the radio or GPS while driving
  • Shooting video and taking photos while driving
  • Anything that requires you to take your hands, eyes or mind off the road
