Safe driving videos

AG Supermarkets (Sully’s of Allenstown, formerly Bi-Wise), the Allenstown Police Department, the Pembroke Police Department, and the administration at Pembroke Academy are sponsoring a short film contest to encourage high school students to make good choices when it comes to distracted driving. The goal is to bring awareness to two of the biggest causes of distracted driving: texting and drinking, and the fatal consequences associated with both. Though this issue is always relevant, it becomes more so on prom night. Prom-eligible student have produced original 60-to 90-second films addressing the issues of distracted and impaired driving.

The community is asked to visit to vote for your favorite video through Monday at 8 a.m. Voters must “Like” their favorite video by clicking the thumbs-up button underneath it. The top 10 highest-rated videos will move on to final judging by the contest’s advisory board.
