Project Yellow Light is a scholarship competition designed to bring about change. As an applicant you have one clear mission: encourage your peers to develop and embrace safe driving habits.

For the video competition:

For both the high school and college categories, the first-place winner will receive a scholarship in the amount of $5,000. Second-place finisher will receive $2,000. Third-place finisher will receive $1,000. Videos are due April 1.

For the billboard competition:

For both high school and college categories, the winner will receive a scholarship in the amount of $2,000. Designs are due March 1.

For the radio competition:

For both high school and college categories, the winner will receive a scholarship in the amount of $2,000. Recordings are due March 1.

Here's what we're looking for. A video, billboard design or radio spot created to motivate, persuade and encourage your peers to not drive distracted. You have a unique opportunity to play a key role in spreading this important message. You can speak to your peers on this subject in a way that adults cannot. The more lives you can impact, the more lives you can save.

You have creative license - we want to see your personal expression come through in your submission. Video: You can video yourself, a group of people, make a cartoon, do a music video. Just keep it to 25 or 55 seconds or less and make sure it's in good taste. Billboard: Please limit your design to few words, and be creative. Radio: Your recording should be 20 seconds. Remember to speak clearly.

If you're interested in applying for the scholarship, you can access the entry form and submit your video on the Apply page. In addition to a scholarship, the winning video will be turned into an Ad Council PSA and will be distributed nationally to 1,600 TV stations and the winning design will be turned into an Out of Home Billboard and displayed on Clear Channel Outdoor digital billboards across the U.S.

The Hunter Garner Scholarship runs annually.

Thank you for being part of the solution. Thank you for helping us save lives.
