We are a collection of professionals with sales, finance, marketing, human resources, strategic planning, et al backgrounds that empower high school students to identify and solve community problems with guidance from local leaders. We want to expand our successful Teen Safe Driving Video Contest pilot throughout the state of Florida.
Our Teen Spokesperson was a student and basketball player at Atlantic Coast High School when he was hit by a car while riding his scooter to school. Three years later, he's recovering from a traumatic brain injury and sharing his story with the community.
Project Showcase Proposal
We will be on site with our Teen Spokesperson, representatives from DCPS and JSO, and high school students that have submitted videos. The videos will also be on display for the general public on several computer screens, and there will be a pledge against distracted driving.

What city is your project based out of?
What sets your Project apart from what is currently available?
We are not lecturing students. We are empowering them through video and design contests to change driving behavior. It is their designs that will be on billboards and their videos in ad spaces.
Why are you and your team the best people on the planet to handle this project?
Two reasons: first, we have a successful pilot in DCPS and second, we have the support of Duval County Public Schools, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, The Allstate Foundation, CSX, and Latitude 30
