Students at Rosemount High School are joining a growing call for an end to distracted driving. Through a public service announcement competition, they are reaching out to their peers to encourage them to be safe and focused behind the wheel.

Technology educator James Norris and his students are getting behind KARE 11’s “Eyes Up” distracted driving campaign and competition with their engaging and realistic submissions. The competition, which launched in March, challenges viewers to create a 15-second video to encourage drivers to put the distractions away and focus on driving. Norris said this gives students a “real-world experience” with the long-term goal of positively changing their habits while in a vehicle.

The class was recently featured on KARE 11, during which they talk about their campaign and why raising awareness of distracted driving is more important than ever. Watch here
