Safe Communities hosts video contest for youth

WELLINGTON COUNTY – Safe Communities Wellington County is inviting all local youth to participate in the Wellington County Distracted Driving Video Contest.

Anyone 19 and under and residing in Wellington County may create and submit a video up to 60 seconds long explaining “What Distracted Driving Means to you.”

“Teens and young adults need to realize they are at a higher risk of getting into an accident, because they are new and inexperienced drivers,” states Safe Communities program coordiantor Christine Veit.

“These are serious issues, which need attention and no distractions. Your parents play a vital role in helping you take intelligent steps to stay safe on the road, but ultimately it’s up to you to make the right decisions,” officials state.

Visit the Safe Communities Wellington County website for more information.  Deadline for submissions is April 18.
