[ARCHIVED] Fourth Annual Teen Driving Camaign

Fourth Annual Teen Driving Campaign announces open submissions with a chance to spend a weekend in Disneyland.

Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo announces that the Prevent All Crashes Everyday (PACE) Campaign is now accepting submissions for this years’ competition. This fun campaign encourages teenagers to develop a safe driving message for their peers in whatever creative format they choose.

Teams can be 4 or 5 students; the only hitch is you have to at least have your permit by the driving date on March 5th, 2010. The top 200 students will be eligible to participate in the driving relay and the top 100 students will be taken to Disneyland April 17th and 18th. The winning campaign will be featured on the WB and My LVTV in May and June.

Other teams can also be awarded with production of their campaigns, and “Disney Dollars” for the Disneyland trip. You have to register your teams’ interest by February 5th, 2010. Projects are due by March 5th at 5:00 p.m. Call Paula Cooper at 751-4255 or Deputy Dugan at 209-6095 for more information. “The sky’s the limit in terms of the message,” says Valerie Evans of the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety, who sponsors the trip, “this is a fun way to get teens to pay attention to a serious message,” she continues.

Last years’ winning campaigns came from Pahrump Valley High School, Arbor View High School, CSN and Las Vegas Academy. Be part of the fun and we’ll look for you at “The happiest place on earth!”
