Clackamas Safe Communities Sponsoring "Posters and Coasters" Safe Driving Art and Writing Contest for Clackamas High School Students
Traditionally, driver’s education has been from parents, educators and safety professionals.
Now, Clackamas high school students will be “in the drivers’ seat” as they are invited to create safe driving media based on risk factors such as speed, distracted driving and impaired driving or prevention strategies such as seat belt use, parents support or graduated driver licensing.
The goal of Posters and Coasters is for students to create safe driving artwork or written messages that will be outreached into local communities. Art work may be reproduced into posters, coasters, air fresheners or decals. Written messages in the form of scripts or storyboards may be made into video safety announcements. Students can base their media on personal or community experience, facts or general risk awareness. Is it encouraged for the work to be positive and uplifting as most of us drive with respect and courtesy.
Art work may be in formats such as sketched, painted or graphically designed. Written work may be in the form of a script or storyboard for a video between :30 seconds and 3 minutes.
The contest will be judged on creativity, message impact and promotional appeal. All entries will be eligible for outreach. The three top students will win gift certificates from Clackamas Town Center at $300 for first place, $200 for second and $100 for third. Contest rules and release forms can be found under MEDIA.
The entry period ends April 15, 2014. Good Luck!
