Lights, camera, action! It’s time to produce a cinematic masterpiece that will be seen by millions. The topic: driving smarter. Contestants have the opportunity to submit a two-minute video to the Drive Smarter Challenge video contest, that demonstrates one or more of the Driver Smarter Challenge campaign’s gas-and money-saving tips. The winner will receive $5,000.
Second/Third Prize is a choice between a VIP NASCAR Race package or one VIP Indy Racing League Package and fourth prize is a Transportation Efficiency Package. In addition the first 80 entrants whose videos meet the contest criteria will receive a $25 ExxonMobil Gift Card and a Car Care Council Car Care Guide. The contest runs from August 17 through September 20, 2009.
“Even though gasoline costs are down from their high levels of last summer, there is no need for consumers to spend more than necessary to fuel their vehicles in today’s tough economy,” said Alliance President Kateri Callahan. “So we urge drivers to use the fuel-efficiency tips provided by the Drive Smarter Challenge campaign to ‘drive down’ those expenses.”
All eligible videos will be posted on the Drive Smarter Challenge website. Once the contest judges select the finalists, the public will vote for the winners of these prizes. For more information about the contest rules and to enter, visit www.drivesmarterchallenge.org.
