As TV spots featuring Clydesdales, cars, talking babies and colas cue up for Super Bowl Sunday, Minnesota teenagers are creating their own TV commercials to promote traffic safety.


Students in grades 9-12 are invited to produce a 30-second TV public service announcement about the importance of buckling up or the dangers of distracted driving. The top teen will win $1,000 and their spot will air during the televised MTV Video Music Awards in 2013. Entries are due April 15.
