The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is reminding high school students that they have until Saturday, Feb. 28, to enter the "Drive Safe PA" radio contest.High school sophomores, juniors and seniors are invited to create a 30-second radio public service announcement, or PSA, focused on aggressive driving, buckling up or driving under the influence. The PSA must include the phrase "Drive Safe PA," which PennDOT is introducing as part of its continued commitment to highway safety.
One finalist will be chosen from each of PennDOT's 11 engineering districts. The winning students will be offered the opportunity to travel to Harrisburg to have the PSA professionally recorded and then distributed to radio stations in their respective areas. Winning students from each PennDOT district will receive certificates and copies of the finished PSA.
Students can submit a completed audio PSA or written script which can be sent via e-mail to RApenndotpress@state.pa.us or mailed to PennDOT Press Office, c/o Alison Wenger, 8th Floor-Keystone Building, 400 North Street, Harrisburg, PA, 17120. Entries must be received or postmarked by Feb. 28.
