Nashville, Tennessee -- Bridgestone Americas' Teens Drive Smart program has launched a video contest that gives students the opportunity to tell Teens Drive Smart, and the nation, why they should earn a $5,000 grant to develop or expand teen driver safety programs at their school.

The 2011 Road Show Rally contest is open to both community and school-based groups comprised of high school students. To enter, the group must create a video 30 seconds to two minutes in length detailing a program they've organized to help students in their school become smarter drivers or describing a program they'd like to start but for which they do not have the resources. Additionally, students will need to tell Teens Drive Smart why they deserve to have a Road Show Rally come to their town.

The Road Show Rally presentation ? Teens Drive Smart's own brand of driver safety education event ? includes an interactive, school-wide safety quiz game, a tire check event and giveaways, along with other surprises.

The winning school will receive a Teens Drive Smart Road Show Rally, expected to take place in late October, and a $5,000 grant to their school for the purpose of expanding any current driver safety programs or implementing a new one. The second and third place winners will each receive a $2,500 grant to their school, also for the purpose of expanding or implementing the school's driver safety programs.

For entry details, students will find the complete official rules and submission information at Students must submit their video before 11:59 p.m. ET on Oct. 7.
