‘TXT L8R’ Social Media Contest Offers Up to $5,000 in Scholarships

INDIANAPOLIS (March 22, 2016) – Indiana high school, trade school and college students have a choice: Use their smartphones behind the wheel and make a tragic mistake, or engage their social media followers to “Drive Now. TXT L8R.” and earn up to $5,000 in scholarships.

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, Indiana Department of Labor, Indiana Department of Transportation and Indiana State Police are again partnering to award up to $5,000 in scholarships to students who post the most creative videos and images on social media.

Contest Rules

Students may read updated contest rules and register their Twitter accounts at Photo and video entries must be public, use the hashtag #TXTL8RIN, and be cross-posted to the registered Twitter account in April during Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Keeping one’s hands on the wheel and eyes on the road is not just a safe driving practice – it’s the law. Social media posts that are composed while driving will be disqualified.

Individual winners will receive $5,000 and up to four team members will receive $2,500 each deposited into their CollegeChoice 529 savings plans. For 2016, entries will be judged in four categories:

  1. High School: Most creative image
  2. High School: Most creative video
  3. Post-secondary: Most creative image
  4. Post-secondary: Most creative video
