W82TXT Video Contest Winners


I’m honored to announce the WINNERS of the Ohio Turnpike’s Inaugural W82TXT teen video contest.

Our contest for students in grades 9-12 corresponded with what's become known as the "100 Deadliest Days" for teens between Memorial Day and Labor Day. That's when schools are out and the newest drivers among us are driving more and, unfortunately, getting into more crashes.

This contest, in tandem with our Red Thumb Band campaign, is aimed at reducing distracted driving by novice drivers as well as the rest of us. Without further ado,  here are the winners. Enjoy!

Randy Cole,
Executive Director
