Distracted Driving

The Council's Distracted Driving Initiative is in collaboration with several agencies in our community. This program is designed to prevent distracted driving in Catawba County. The initiative consists of a Preventing Distracted Driving Video Contest for high school students to create videos showing the dangers of distracted driving. Each spring, the contest takes place and is concluded with a Red Carpet Event where the videos are shown and a winner is announced. This year, the Council will lead a county-wide initiative to not only reach high school students but all community members. Many car accidents and fatalities can be avoided by preventing distracted driving. Help us make a difference!

*For High School students ONLY!*
