Montana lost 218 teens in motor vehicle crashes in the ten years between 2001 and 2010Working together we can focus on the road ahead and move towards zero deaths. “Teen car crashes are not an incurable cancer.  We KNOW how to fix it” says Russ Henk, Texas director of Teens in the Driver Seat. Education is part of the solution.  Check out these teen scholarships and grant opportunities:

  • Project Yellow Light is a scholarship competition to encourage teens to avoid distracted driving. Graduating high school seniors are invited to create a video that could persuade drivers to make safe choices while driving. The competition opens October 31, 2013 and ends March 14, 2014. Three scholarships are awarded ($5,000, $2,000 and $1,000) to the winning entries.  
  • Act Out Loud – Sponsor a Global Youth Traffic Safety Month rally at your school next spring and register for a chance to win $10,000! There are two design projects along the way to help teams earn up to $1,000 for their rally, and qualify for the grand prize of $10,000! Each participating Act Out Loud team will be asked to complete five steps throughout the contest, with the goal of raising awareness for teen safe driving.
