Toyota TeenDrive365 Video Challenge – Scholarships.com

Toyota TeenDrive365 Video Challenge Scholarship – Maximum Amount: $15,000 – Application Deadline: February 28, 2019 – Learning to drive is one of the coolest times for a teen.

Create a 30-60 second video for your fellow teen drivers that highlights the importance of safe teen driving. Your video’s message should be one that would resonate with you and your peers. If your friends – and teens throughout the United States – were going to watch one video that made them think twice about making bad decisions behind the wheel, what would that video be?
