Drive Safe Contest

Drive Safe High School & College Student Contest

Drive Safe With Centerline is a campaign designed to bring about positive change in driving habits in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

CALLING ALL USVI HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS! In partnership with the Virgin Islands Office of Highway Safety and Virgin Islands Police Department, Centerline Car Rentals is holding a video, graphic, and radio content competition. Create public service announcements warning the community of the dangers of distracted and impaired driving for a chance to WIN A CASH PRIZE, sponsored by the Virgin Islands Insurance Association.

St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John students, here’s how you can help:

  1. Commit to being a safe driver.
  2. Submit a video, graphic, or radio PSA encouraging drivers to eliminate distractions and drive sober.*

Together, we can inspire others to help keep our roads safe!

*all submissions will become property of Centerline Car Rentals, the Virgin Islands Office of Highway Safety, and the Virgin Islands Police Department, and may be used on our website, social media platforms, and other marketing.

Any facts and/or statistics used in your submission must come from NHTSA or VIOHS. These organizations provide the most up-to-date and factually correct data related to driving. Given that statistics can change from year to year, we recommend producing creative that does not rely heavily on statistics.

Be Inspired

We want you to inspire and motivate your peers and the community to Drive Safe in the form of a video, graphic, or radio ad. Here are some things to think about while crafting your message:

  • What would inspire you to eliminate distractions and drive sober? How can you turn that into a video, graphic, or radio ad.
  • Virgin Islanders know distracted and impaired driving is dangerous. So why have there been more than 1,000 crashes due to distracted and impaired driving in the past year?
  • Sometimes messages about impaired or drunk driving are scary and/or negative. How can you inspire others in a positive way?
  • How can you tell a story that motivates others?
  • Find some inspiration and ideas here!
