Create Real Impact Contest Awards are open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia or DACA recipients between the ages of 14 and 22 years. Entrants must be enrolled as full-time students in an accredited educational institution (secondary [middle/high] school, trade school, college, or university). Residency, age and current enrollment at an accredited educational institution will be verified and subject to final decision of eligibility by Impact Teen Drivers. All applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. Void where prohibited.
Create an original work showcasing your idea for a SOLUTION or STRATEGY to end reckless and distracted driving. Distracted driving is anything that takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, your mind off your driving, or keeps your ears from being alert to your surroundings. We encourage participants to go beyond addressing phone-use; behind the wheel distractions include texting and talking on the phone but also applying make-up, turning to talk to your friends, adjusting the GPS or radio/shuffling the playlist, eating or drinking, or anything else that takes your attention away from the task of driving.
We also strongly encourage participants to avoid the word, "accident." These are not just sad accidents but 100% preventable crashes. We believe that the majority of car crashes are preventable based on the choices being made inside of a car by a driver or a passenger.
