Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of teen injuries and death.

Champion Schools ProgramThat’s why the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey invites you to enter your school in our 3rd Annual “U Got Brains Champions Schools Program” - a contest to challenge New Jersey high school students and faculty to develop fun and interactive campaigns aimed at educating teens about the importance of safe driving.

As an educator, your influence extends beyond the classroom. Help empower your students to drive safely and enable them to spread the word and encourage their peers to do the same!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Develop an idea in your school for a project related to teen driving safety.
  2. Submit your project name, a 500-word summary of the proposed project, along with a plan to raise awareness and make an impact on new drivers by November 30, 2012.
  3. If your school’s project is selected, you will receive a $1,000 stipend to implement it.
  4. Selected schools will have several months to implement their projects and compete against other schools to win the ultimate prize:  a driving simulator for your school!
