Allstate Offers High School Journalism Awards
Teens say texting is the biggest distraction behind the wheel, yet 82 percent of teens admit using cell phones while driving, according to recent research by The Allstate Foundation and Teenage Research Unlimted (TRU).
The Allstate Foundation is putting teen journalists in the driver’s seat to spread awareness about the dangers of texting and driving. Teens across the nation can compete for a $3,000 scholarship by publishing an article in their school newspaper or producing a broadcast news segment for their school television station about the dangers of texting and driving. Award entries will be accepted now through March 20, 2010.
