Hold an “It Can Wait” contest

For PNA Member News Organizations

We are encouraging PNA member news organizations to hold local “It Can Wait” contests, with a monetary or other prize of your choosing, asking high school students to write a column or produce a video editorial about the dangers of distracted driving.

We encourage your participation and hope to generate excitement about the contest in your community; however, prizes –sponsored through a generous grant from AT&T — will not be provided by the PNA Foundation.


Tips for a successful contest and sample contest rules, entry form and release form are available below.  Sample ads for your use or customization to encourage entries are available as well.  To request the sample ads, please email the PNA Foundation.
