Ford Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) has been a long-time supporter of KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25®. Now they are offering musically-inclined teens in your community the opportunity to create a song about traffic safety that could lead to a $5,000 prize.

Take 3 To See®, Seat Belts-FASTENATING!®, and It’s Not A Race! Create Space© .

The contest is entitled "Belt it OUT!" It is a national competition for an original safe driving song. Students must write, compose, and perform the song. Students may compete individually, or in teams of up to five (5) members. Students must be ages 15-19 and not be professional paid performers.

Students can win up to $5,000 for their submissions. The public will be invited to choose the top five finalists on the DSFL website from March 16-31st 2010, and then Kate Voegele ( will pick the winners.
