The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security's Highway Safety Division has organized the 5th annual "Dance. Don’t Chance" prom and graduation safe driving video contest for schools across the Commonwealth.
The safe driving video contest asks students to write and produce a 60-second video to promote safe, drug and alcohol free driving both during the prom and graduation season and year-round.
The two top-rated videos will be publicly announced later this spring, with winning schools and individual students receiving prizes from participating sponsors.
Student videos must be submitted by early March 2012. Visit the "Dance. Don't Chance" website to learn more about deadlines and guidelines for participating in this year's contest.
