  • Scholarship Description
  • Project Yellow Light is a scholarship competition designed to bring about change. As an applicant you have one clear mission: encourage your peers to develop and embrace safe driving habits. For both the high school and college contests, the first-place winner will receive a scholarship in the amount of $5,000. The second-place finisher will receive $2,000. Third-place finisher will receive $1,000.

    Applicants must create a video designed to motivate, persuade and encourage your peers to not drive distracted. You have a unique opportunity to play a key role in spreading this important message. You can speak to your peers on this subject in a way that adults cannot. The more lives you can impact, the more lives you can save.

    You have a creative license - we want to see your personal expression come through in your video. You can video yourself, a group of people, make a cartoon, do a music video. Just keep it to 25-55 seconds and make sure it's in good taste.
    In addition to a scholarship, the winning video for both high school and college will be turned into an Ad Council PSA and distributed nationally to 1,600 TV stations.
