Hunter Garner Scholarship

Hunter Garner Scholarship
Hunter Garner Scholarship is a scholarship competition called Project Yellow Light for high school students and college students. The competition involves producing a one minute video focused on encouraging friends to avoid distractions while driving.

The scholarship is named after Hunter Garner from Fredericksburg, Virginia, who died at the age of 16 in an auto accident on June 10, 2007. Hunter's parents and sister established the scholarship to encourage more teens to develop safe driving habits.

First-place winner receives a $5,000 scholarship, second-place is awarded a $2,000 scholarship, and a $1,000 scholarship goes to third place. In addition, the first-place winner will have their video distributed to 1,600 television stations throughout the nation as a Ad Council public service announcement.

Videos can include one person, groups, a cartoon or a music video. Videos will be judged on how they effectively motivate young people to avoid distractions while driving.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000 - $5,000.
