Video must be between six (0:06) and sixty (0:60) seconds in length.

Selfie videos will not be accepted (Don't just look into the camera and talk).

Don't break any laws while filming.

“Since teens are in their formative driving years, our video contest is one of many ways we encourage safe driving behaviors,” said Rachel Bell, KTA Marketing & Communications Director. “Our previous contest was extremely successful, but we want to spread the message even further this year.”
