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. But facts have shown it can be extremely dangerous. You have the power to inspire your fellow teens, maybe better than a teacher or a parent can, because you know what messages will be the most powerful. 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?
