Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation’s End Distracted Driving Project Announces Winners of 2021 Meme and Video Contest

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Students who attended Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) affiliated high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools submitted videos of up to one minute, memes, and GIFs of up to ten seconds with one goal in mind: raise awareness of the risks associated with distracted driving.

“The End DD contest helps our students educate their peers on the dangers of driving distracted in a fun and impactful way. We are grateful for the support provided by Lear Corporation, End DD, and the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation are honored that our students get to help keep the memory of Casey alive through this contest,” says President and Chief Executive Officer of SADD, Rick Birt.

Eligible submissions focused on one of three topics: Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Distracted, Respectful Drivers Don’t Drive Distracted, and Distracted Drivers Can’t Be Defensive Drivers. Joel Feldman, co-founder of EndDD.org says, “We are so proud of the students across the country who are passionate about keeping their friends and family safe by speaking up when they see dangerous driving from their peers.”
