I've written before about the importance of teen driving safety education and parental involvement with adolescents. Morally as a professional blogger and personally as a mother of four teens -- Girl, Girl, Boy Triplets plus a son just one year older who will be getting his driver's license soon -- I feel there's something else that is a true public service to share with every American family. All MBE readers who have teens are invited to join me in encouraging your teenage kids to enter the 2012 Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Power of You(th) Video Contest.
|My Teens Have Attitudes, Doesn't Every Kid at This Stage?|
The Grand Prize Winner will also receive an all-expense paid trip for himself/herself and one guardian to Washington D.C. for MADD’s National Conference in September 2012.

Teen Video Contest
Teens -- even those not interested in entering the current video contest -- can also do something else very positive for themselves and their friends. How? Teens can easily take a stand by signing pledges via the MADD Power of You(th) Facebook Page to not drink before age 21 and to never ride in a car with someone who’s been drinking. Kids can also enter to win NFL prizes by drafting friends to follow their leads and also sign pledges on that page.
The Power of You(th) Teen community outreach program is orchestrated by nonprofit Mothers Against Drunk Driving and is made possible by national presenting sponsor State Farm
Founded by Candy Lightner, a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver who had three prior drunk driving convictions, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking. In addition to the important task of educating and influencing lawmakers, parents, teens and the general public, MADD is one of the largest victim services organizations in the U.S. providing support to drunk and drugged driving victims and survivors at no charge, serving one person every nine minutes through local MADD victim advocates and via their hotline at 877-MADD-HELP. Learn more at www.madd.org or by calling 877-ASK-MADD.
