About the D3CA: Don't Drive Distracted Contest


California high school students are invited to compete in a two-tier competition designed to raise awareness about the dangers young drivers face when behind the wheel of a car. Participants will design and develop a production ready multi-media teen safe driving awareness campaign. The winning campaign design will be produced and distributed by a grant from the DCH Teen Safe Driving Foundation.

Campaigns will be judged based on the contest participant's clarity and conciseness of their safe driving message and the creativity they choose to deliver that message.
