October 18-21, 2014, NOYS will host the fifth annual Teen Distracted Driving Prevention Summit in Washington, DC. NOYS believes that effective programs are teen-led and teen-informed. We see the need to convene, train, and empower youth leaders to address the issue of distracted driving and have accomplished three successful years hosting the Teen Distracted Driving Prevention Summit.
Through funding from AT&T and State Farm, twelve teams of two youth will be selected to receive travel sponsorship scholarships to attend the 2014 Teen Distracted Driving Prevention Summit. These teams will learn how to develop, implement and support distracted driving prevention efforts in their local communities. They will also have the opportunity to meet with their states' representatives on Capitol Hill.
Youth teams will be required to attend the Summit October 18-21, 2014 and commit to organizing and hosting a distracted driving prevention campaign in their home states.
Youth interested in applying for this leadership opportunity should complete this application with a friend. Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2014.
