End Distracted Driving (EndDD.org) is a campaign of the Casey Feldman Foundation that aims to preserve life and promote safety on a large scale through advocacy, education, and action. Having already spoken to more than 325,000 students and drivers, EndDD.org is bigger than ever and has taken on major goals this year. Below are just a few things you can expect to see from the organization in 2017.
Video Meme Contest
Partnering with Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), the American Association for Justice, and Anapol Weiss, EndDD.org is launching a national video and meme contest called “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Distracted.” The contest, which has great prizes and is open to all middle school and high school students from schools with SADD chapters, will help young people develop effective messages to combat distracted driving.

PSAs and More Presentation Materials
EndDD.org is creating materials to make it even easier for schools and students to conduct awareness campaigns. They will also be producing more public service announcements, videos and animations in 2017, including those for Spanish-speaking audiences. The organization will continue to provide without cost speakers for schools across the country
