Student Winners for Billboards —Jami Pandiscio and Sierra Fentress
Winning PSAs for 9th Annual “Project Yellow Light”

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.

The Ad Council and Project Yellow Light announced the winners of the ninth annual Project Yellow Light scholarship competition. The contest involves students creating a TV, radio or billboard PSA to educate their peers about the dangers of distracted driving, specifically the dangers of using a phone while driving. The winning PSAs were revealed July 29, 2020 on a digital billboard in New York City’s Times Square, in space donated by Clear Channel Outdoor.

Project Yellow Light was established in 2007 by the family of Hunter Garner to honor his memory after his death in a car crash at age 16. According to the latest data, 2,841 people were killed in crashes involving distracted drivers in 2018. Texting while driving is an especially problematic trend among younger drivers. In 2018, 8 percent of people killed in teen (15-19) driving crashes died when the teen drivers were distracted at the times of the crashes.*

“A huge thanks to our amazing partners, participants and especially our 2020 Hunter Garner Scholarship
winners for spreading this critical message about the dangers of distracted driving,” said Project Yellow Light  founder Julie Garner. “I’m so proud of our student winners who are using their voice and creativity to impact young drivers and help save lives.”
