FORD Changemaker Competitive Events Series

Each year, SADD chapters across the country lead traffic safety efforts in their schools and communities. Ford Driving Skills for Life and SADD are teaming up to recognize chapters for their efforts. Any registered SADD chapter who completes an event around drugged, drunk, distracted, or drowsy driving prevention will be eligible to enter their activity in the the Change Maker Competitive Events Series. As part of this competition, award submissions will be evaluated based upon the criteria below.

Chapters must complete an online application sharing their program and results by April 17, 2020.
