Calling all high schoolers:
The PNA Foundation and Pennsylvania’s newspapers, together with AT&T are joining again to host an “It Can Wait” editorial contest to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.
The 2019 contest, which begins Oct. 1, is open to all Pennsylvania high school students and offers a $500 prize for the column or editorial that best answers the question, "Why is it important to take the It Can Wait pledge to drive distraction free?"
The Gettysburg Times newspaper is hosting a local contest – with $200 prize – to determine which entry is submitted to PNA for the statewide prize. We will announce our winner the end of January and publish his/her winning editorial.
