During fall 2013, “Decide to Drive: A Student Advocacy Program,” a high school distracted driving awareness curriculum, was created and distributed by Scholastic with the AAOS and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (Auto Alliance), to approximately 200,000 high school teachers nationwide.

Through the curriculum, U.S. high school students: assessed, observed and recorded distracted driving in their own communities; role played how to start a conversation with a driver about their distracted driving behaviors; researched local laws and distracted driving incidences; and examined and use national statistics on distracted driving.

Contest winners were announced in March 2014.
