Calling on Caribbean and Latin American youth for Project Yellow Light

Our friends over at the Caribbean Development Bank are working with Project Yellow light to encourage young people to create road safety awareness videos. Make a video. Their straplines are simple, "Win a prize. Save a life". Caribbean and Latin American youth can enter the  contest and could win a trip for submitting your video to attend the Grand Prix Formula 1 in Mexico or win an iPad mini!

With your video you will motivate and persuade other young people to drive safely and responsibly. You have until September 20 to submit your video. The winners will be contacted before October 6. Project Yellow Light wants to know your ideas and views through the video. Use your creativity to convey the message in the best way possible. This is a unique opportunity to make your voice heard and to promote road safety in your community.

Let us work
together for a region free of road accidents! Yellow Light project is based on "Project Yellow Light" created by the parents of Hunter Garner, a teenager who died in the US in a traffic accident in 2007. The participants, aged between 18 and 30 years of age in Latin America and the Caribbean, are invited to produce short videos of 25 or 55 seconds to encourage his generation to drive safely.

MAKE YOUR VIDEO NOW

To participate, send your video and fill out the registration. As a participant, you have the potential to play a key role in spreading this important message. Only you have the ability communicate with young people of your generation in a more direct and effective way in which adults can not, and so let them know the tragic consequences that can generate sending a text message while driving and the risk of similar behavior. This is a unique opportunity to make your voice heard and to promote safety and good habits in your community. Remember that the more people you reach, the more lives are saved.
