When 16-year old Hunter Gardner died in a 2007 car crash, his parents channeled their grief into the launch of Project Yellow Light, a safe driving campaign in Spotsylvania County. Now the campaign is going national, thanks to a partnership with the Ad Council and the National Organizations for Youth Safety.
Starting Dec. 1, high school seniors can produce and submit videos on the importance of safe driving and the dangers of texting while driving. The winning video will air as a public-service announcement next year as part of National Youth Traffic Safety Month.
The winner will also receive a $2,000 scholarship.
