Head Up, Phones Down Video Contest


Video Contest Encourages “Heads Up, Phones Down”

Starting Feb. 1, The Montgomery County Department of Transportation is hosting a “Heads Up, Phones Down” contest for students to help educate others about pedestrian safety. To enter the contest, students are required to create a 30-second video to promote the importance of focusing on their surroundings and not on their phone while walking, driving or riding a bike. Students who participate in the contest will earn 5 SSL hours and will be entered to win a PS5, Apple Watch and gift cards. The contest runs Feb. 1 through Feb. 22.
