Participate in our competition and you could win up to $2,000. This contest is designed to motivate, persuade, and encourage other young people to drive without distractions. The light yellow LAC project is a short film competition designed to encourage a change of attitude among young drivers in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is based on "Project Yellow Light" created by the parents of Hunter Garner, a teenager who died in the U.S. in a traffic accident in 2007. Since its inception, this initiative has had great impact at the national level. The participants, aged between 18 and 30 years of age in Latin America and the Caribbean, are invited to produce short (from 25 to 55 seconds) videos to encourage his generation to drive safely.

The competition is sponsored by the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB - BID) The Federation International De L'Automobile (FIA) and MTV.

To participate send your video and fill out the registration form we sent you. As a contestant, you can play a key role in spreading this important message. Only you have the ability to go to other young people of your generation of a more direct and effective way, that adults cannot, and thus let them know the tragic consequences that may result in sending a text message while driving and the risk of other similar behavior. This is a unique opportunity to make your voice to be heard and to promote safety and good habits in your community. Remember that while more people it impacts, more lives are saved.
