Meme Contest Showcase

Meme Contest Showcase

Teen Driver Safety Week was in October and the Florida Teen Safe Driving Coalition ran a meme contest that was open to all students of Florida high schools. The Safe Driving Starts with Me(me) Contest gave cash prizes for the selected winning submissions. And, internet meme fame for everyone who participated!

The purpose was to help raise awareness of safe driving behaviors among teen drivers. Participants were encouraged to submit memes on various safety subjects such as seatbelt safety, distracted driving, and impaired driving. Of course, simply communicating a message of overall safe driving was also appreciated!

We’re in awe of all the wonderful submissions we received. Thanks to all the students across Florida who participated and helped make the contest such a success. Special thanks to Florida Virtual Schools too!

Please Buckle Up for Laura & Eddie

Laura & Eddie on a boatPrizes for this contest were graciously provided by the Always Wear Your Seatbelt Foundation. Please buckle up in memory of Laura & Eddie.

That they died at 17 and 19 years old is a tragedy beyond words. That their passion, promise and strength, so filled with their high spirits, courage and humor lives on to save and inspire lives is nothing short of a miracle. It is difficult to remember all the statistics. It is easy to remember Laura Grant and Eddie Culberhouse.

A passionate message has been born of our Laura and Eddie’s story, two amazing young people whose lives and love have touched so many. The Always Wear Your Seatbelt (AWYS) Foundation was founded on September 21, 2012, by their mothers in loving memory of two incredible teens who seemed to know that they would be together forever. Our goal is to bring this message to teens in such a way that they will NEVER forget to buckle up. Learn more…
