ACHS students win drive now/text later ad contest

What I found compelling about 'Bryan's Party' is that it addressed the notion of invincibility - BARRY NORTHSTINE.

Adair County High School students Eli Jackson, Alan Godsey, Timothy Watson and Tyler McKinney took this year's title with their top-scoring public service announcement, "Bryan's Party," in Bluegrass Cellular's public service announcement contest for the company's campaign against texting while driving and received a check for $1,000.


The "Drive now.textL8R" contest is an annual competition which challenges students to produce short television public service announcements (PSAs) which discourage others from texting while driving.

"Bryan's Party," which received the highest marks from judges and and other polling, tells the story of two teenagers headed to a friend's house. While rushing to make it to the party on time, the driver sends a quick text message that has grave consequences.

"What I found compelling about 'Bryan's Party' is that it addressed the notion of invincibility," said Barry Nothstine, of Bluegrass Cellular. "I'm sure that many of us are guilty of sending a quick 'on the way' message without really thinking about the consequences. But these students are telling us that it's time to think about what's at stake, no matter how small or simple the text message may seem."

In addition, "Bryan's Party" aired on local television and in the cell phone company's stores throughout the month of May, 2014.
