Harrod, Ohio—Car crashes are the #1 cause of death for young people in America, and 75% of them do not involve drugs or alcohol; most fatal teen crashes involve reckless and distracted driving. This year, the students of Allen East High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) committed themselves to fighting this preventable health epidemic by creating and launching a strategic Distracted Driving Social Media Campaign that uses a positive community norming (PCN) framework.
Peer-to-peer messaging is a critical component to changing the driving culture. By adopting a PCN framework—one that amplifies the positive behaviors and beliefs of drivers and passengers, rather than focusing on risky behaviors—students can harness the power of perception to cultivate better driving and riding habits among the broader community.
The campaign is part of the Just Drive Contest generously sponsored by New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Company (NJM), and hosted by the national nonprofit, Impact Teen Drivers (ITD) whose vision is to change the driving culture to one that is distraction-free. ITD works with champions of all ages and backgrounds—from students and teachers to doctors and first responders—to disseminate evidence-based tools and programming to empower good decision-making in the car.
The Allen East High School SADD Distracted Driving Social Media Campaign is an opportunity for teachers or advisors to engage student leaders in the creation of empowerment strategies and solutions that address reckless and distracted driving. Students leading the effort develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills through conducting research and building strategic communications, as well as advance their technical and creative writing skills.
Winners will be selected by a panel of qualified judges based on the campaign’s concept and creativity (25%,) ex*****on of the campaign (25%), and the effectiveness of the message (50%). The winning campaigns will be announced the week of September 23, 2021. Prizes will be awarded to the schools with the best campaigns as follows: First place - $10,000, second place - $5,000, and third place - $2,500.
Thank you for your commitment to make our community safer by helping us stop the number one killer of young people. Together, we can engender meaningful behavior change that will save lives not only in this generation of drivers, but also in generations to come.

Below please find the week of events planned at AEHS.

Impact Teen Drivers Distracted Driving Week of Events

Monday: McFlurry Monday We will be having a seatbelt compliance check. Before school starts, SADD members will go out to the parking lot and check to see if drivers are wearing their seatbelts. If students are, positive behavior is rewarded and they will receive a McFlurry Coupon from McDonald’s.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Post a seatbelt selfie #aesadd to win a McFlurry Coupon

Tuesday: Tip Tuesday We will be posting tip signs on students’ lockers. The signs will include safety tips for safe driving, such as, what behaviors are risky and solutions/strategies for prevention.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Post a safety tip video/meme/boomerang #aesadd to win a Taco Bell Taco

Wednesday: Survey Snack Day We will be creating an anonymous online survey for students to fill out during Academic Team time. It will be asking questions about what distracts them while they are driving and what they do to stay focused on the road. We will share the results with the student body later on during the week. Students who fill out survey and show to AT teacher can get ticket for a snack from basket (Little Debbie’s, fruit snacks etc.)
SOCIAL MEDIA: Post results of survey on social media
Thursday: Rock the Results Day SADD will hide rocks around the school, any student who finds one and turns it into Kelly Prichard, SADD Advisor with a safe driving tip will receive a prize!
SOCIAL MEDIA: Recorded tips posted on social media.
Friday: We will be providing a driving simulator that students will get to use to see what it is like to drive while distracted. We will have this available to schedule an appointment between 8:30 AM-2:30 PM in groups of 2. If they participate, they will get a donut and a goodie bag compliments of State Highway Patrol and AAA. Banner pledge for safe driving is open to all students to sign and receive “Smarties”
SOCIAL MEDIA: Post videos/pics of students participating and VLOG of what they learned.
