“McDivitt Makes A Difference” Video PSA Contest

Details About the Annual McDivitt Makes a Difference PSA Contest

2018 Entries are under review

The 2018 contest is now closed for entries. Thank you for all of the submissions! Each video will be reviewed for content, creativity and adherence to the rules. The winner will be notified via email, and each student who participated will receive an email with feedback on their submission. One finalist will be announced each day on our Facebook page April 16-20, so stay tuned! Our winning PSA will be announced the week of April 23, 2018.

The 9th annual McDivitt Makes a Difference PSA Contest is now closed.

Each year, McDivitt Law Firm holds this state-wide PSA contest to give students a platform to speak to their peers about the dangers of distracted driving.

The winning Public Service Announcement will air on TV in Colorado for two weeks in May, and the student who creates the winning PSA can choose between a MacBook Pro with editing software OR a $1,500 gift card. The winning student’s school will also receive a monetary donation from the firm.

One of the biggest goals of McDivitt Makes a Difference is to keep our roads safe for everyone in the community, and this PSA contest is designed to help high school students send an effective safe-driving message to their peers.

How it Works

All PSA entries submitted by the deadline will be reviewed by two groups of people. The first, executives at McDivitt Law Firm, including a video production specialist, are looking for the content of the message. All entries will also be reviewed by a team of advertising executives looking for quality of production and story-telling.

Rules for Entry

  • NO DISTRACTED DRIVING – We do not want anyone breaking the law or putting themselves in danger in the making of this video. If your video contains actual distracted driving, you will be disqualified.
  • Colorado high school students must be in grades 9-12.
  • PSAs must be 28-29 seconds in length.
  • The topic of the PSA must be the dangers of distracted driving, which can include texting while driving, putting on make-up, friends who create distractions, or substance abuse, among others.
  • Entries will be judged on students’ abilities to analyze and address the topic and produce a quality video. Creativity is encouraged!
  • Entries must be submitted electronically through the official online form, found on the Rules & Regulations page.
