Youth ATV riders invited to submit 'Do the Ride Thing' videos


The ATV Safety Institute is holding its “Do the Ride Thing” Video Contest for young quad enthusiasts.

The contest, which runs through Sept. 6, offers 10 prizes totaling $10,000. Students ages six to 18 may enter. The winning videos will be used as public service announcements (PSAs) by the Institute.

To enter, kids create a 30- or 60-second video/PSA, upload it to YouTube, and submit an entry form on the website. For official video content requirements, contest rules and entry forms, click here.

“What better way to motivate and inform people – especially kids and their parents – about the safe and responsible use of all-terrain vehicles than to have kids create videos that highlight one or more of the ATV Safety Institute’s Golden Rules?” said Paul Vitrano, executive vice president of the organization. “By harnessing the social networking power of YouTube, it gives kids the opportunity to ‘Do the Ride Thing’ and help other kids ride safe/ride smart.”
