High school students throughout Clackamas County are invited to participate in the "Drive to Zero Posters and Coasters" safe driving media contest.
Students interested in entering the contest should create artwork that promotes safe driving. Entries should focus on risk factors such as speed, distracted driving or impaired driving; or on prevention strategies such as seat belt use, parent support or eliminating distractions.
All entries will be judged on creativity, message impact and promotional appeal. Winning entries will be eligible to be used for outreach by the county. The students who create the top three entries will each win cash prizes — $300 for first place, $200 for second and $100 for third.
