VOTE for my High Schoolers' Safe Driving Video!

From stellar teacher and friend Steve Smail:

My film class put together two 25 second "safe driving" PSAs and entered them in a contest sponsored by Fox17, Ford Motor Co and Westfield Insurance.

One of the two - "Confessions" - was chosen as one of 4 finalists, viewable at

The finalist receiving the most online votes between May 1 and May 10 has their PSA aired during American Idol and of course fame and fortune come our way.

So, visit, vote for the USN entry (Clip 1, Confessions) if you feel so inclined, and send along your friends and family to do the same.

Now go vote!

Thanks Alex. If I took off out of town that week I'd come home to divorce papers! I hope someone ustreams and twitters to help us poor classroom teachers with limited travel budgets. I _will_ be all over NECC in San Antonio this summer, including the preconference edubloggercon08!
