Farm­ers In­sur­ance Spon­sor­ing Keiki Video Con­test

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Central Oahu Islander -

With school now back in ses­sion for most of the state’s keiki, Farm­ers In­sur­ance Hawaii is en­cour­ag­ing students to think about safe ways to get to and from school.

Mid­dle and high school students from across the state are in­vited to sub­mit videos of safe driv­ing and pedes­trian prac­tices as a part of Farm­ers In­sur­ance’s Hot Shots video con­test.

The con­test con­sists of two cat­e­gories one for mid­dle school and one for high school

and one win­ner will be se­lected from each. The top sub­mis­sion from each cat­e­gory will re­ceive $1,500, and their video will air on TV as a pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ment. Sec­on­dand third- place schools will re­ceive $1,000 and $500 cash prizes in each cat­e­gory.

The Hot Shots video con­test al­lows students to de­liver a se­ri­ous traf­fic safety mes­sage in a fun way, while in­still­ing safe driv­ing habits at a young age and help­ing to make our streets safer for ev­ery­one,” said Farm­ers In­sur­ance Hawaii op­er­a­tions pres­i­dent Michele Saito. “Last year, we were over­whelmed with the qual­ity of the videos, which helped re­mind the community about the im­por­tance of pay­ing at­ten­tion while driv­ing, es­pe­cially avoid­ing cell phone use and drink­ing and driv­ing.”

Saito added that the con­test can be a fun way for students to raise funds for school clubs and sports.

The con­test launched Aug. 2 and con­tin­ues through Oct. 17. Con­test rules and in­for­ma­tion are avail­able at the Farm­ers In­sur­ance Hawaii web­site, my­farm­er­shawaii.com/hotshots. For ques­tions, contact Farm­ers In­sur­ance Hawaii at 544-3988.
