Patel to launch winning safe-driving awareness campaign geared to teens

Sophomore Nick Patel is the winner of the Don’t Drive Distracted New Jersey teen safe-driving awareness campaign contest. Patel’s campaign will launch in September, when his message “Drive 2 Live 2 Drive” will be seen on billboards and in commercials and public-service announcements.
More than 250 New Jersey teens competed in a rigorous process that involved an essay, a Facebook contest, and evaluation by a panel of judges. The DCH Teen Safe Driving Foundation awarded Patel a college scholarship, a trip to California to attend a national safe-driving conference and $10,000 to start his campaign.
