Phase 2: School-Based Program


Be In the Zone - Turn off Your Phone

Phase 2: School-Based Program is a teen motor vehicle safety program that encourages teenagers to translate the lessons they learned in the hospital into a year-long distracted driving campaign in their schools with a focus on cell phone use, especially texting while driving.

Groups of students from surrounding counties participate in the Phase 1 hospital-based interactive teen motor vehicle safety program, "Be in The Zone" These students are then charged with developing and executing a multi-faceted, distracted driving campaign at their schools and in their communities. They are provided with a detailed instruction guide and other resources from Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

The campaign is in the form of a competition consisting of Best Campaign and Best Public Service Announcement (PSA). Through the support of our funders, each competition is awarded with cash prizes..

Research shows that programs targeting behavior change among teenagers are more likely to be successful if they have some component of self-management and if messages come from peers. All schools continue to do an outstanding job in getting school and community involved. We are proud of the leadership role they have taken and the support the schools have shown in spreading this important message.
