Bluegrass cellular Logo 201ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (3/24/14) – Due to a recent request, Bluegrass Cellular has opened the DRIVE NOW. TEXT L8R. PSA contest to middle school students.

The contest, which was originally open to high school students only, challenges participants to help put an end to distracted driving in their communities by producing short television public service announcements (PSAs) that discourage others from texting while driving.

“It’s encouraging to know that young people who are just starting to think about driving want to get involved with this cause,” said Barry Nothstine, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bluegrass Cellular. “Because it’s an important message, and it really can impact people at any age. Hats off to these students for wanting to make a difference in their community.”

Students have from now until Friday, April 18, 2014, to submit their videos.

Once submitted, the PSAs will be reviewed and scored by an expert panel of judges that includes Barry Nothstine, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bluegrass Cellular; David Vawter, Chief Creative Officer of Doe-Anderson, a Louisville-based advertising agency; and Trooper Jeff Gregory, Public Affairs Officer for the Kentucky State Police. A portion of the final score will also come from a community vote, which Bluegrass Cellular will host via social media.

The winning PSA, to be announced May 1, 2014, will air on local television and in Bluegrass Cellular stores throughout the month of May.

The winning student or team of students will receive $1,000, as well as the opportunity to shadow the WBKO newsroom in Bowling Green or advertising agency Doe-Anderson, depending on their interests.

For a complete list of guidelines and submission instructions, visit Bluegrass Cellular online.

Students can also pick up an informational packet from their school guidance counselors or one of Bluegrass Cellular’s Customer Care Centers. Locate the nearest Bluegrass Cellular Customer Care Center.
