Local Art Campaign Highlights Dangers of Distracted Driving

By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Don't drive distracted.

The message, while simple, is something teens can forget while on the road.

In response to that, the law offices of Joe Bornstein launched the Arrive Alive Creative Contest.

In its 14th year, the traveling exhibit has featured the work of more than 700 students throughout the state.

"So the Arrive Alive Creative Contest is open to graduating high school seniors in May. It asks them to send the message to their peers about the dangers of drinking and driving and distracted driving. The artwork and the message that these kids send is pretty impressive and we hope that the message not only resonates for students, but also for their parents, teachers and love ones as well."

Students can submit drawings, paintings, essays, poems or videos.

Entries will be accepted until May 1st.
