One Text or Call Could Wreck It All

As part of Global Youth Traffic Safety Month, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Mazda Motorsports, the Ad Council and the National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) announced today, May 2, the six high school and college winners of their second annual Project Yellow Light scholarship contest.

“One Text or Call Could Wreck It All,” was the theme of this year’s contest. Entrants were asked to develop and produce a short video that would depict for their peers the dangers of risky mobile behavior on national roadways.

The high school grand prize was awarded to Brittany Devasure, a senior from North Carolina, for her video.
