PSA Requirements

The PSA should be a maximum of 30 seconds in length. Participants may enter as many PSA's as they like. Teachers may act as mentors or entrants, providing direction and supervision, as long as the entry is solely a student effort.

PSA's will be judged by a non-biased panel of individuals selected by their involvement with highway safety issues. The PSA's will be judged based on persuasiveness, logical organization, clarity, quality and creativity. Winning entries must:

  • Clearly communicate the importance of teens using safety belts whenever they drive or ride in cars, no matter who is driving.
  • Identify a target audience and feature a call to action.
  • Incorporate and clearly communicate the Buckle Up/Arrive Alive message.
  • Show original and creative ideas.
  • Be neat, clean, and professional in presentation regardless of format in which video is presented.
