Ds Scholarship

Hamburg student wins third place in video contest

The Highway Safety Network and State Farm recently gave Domanik Ernst, a Hamburg high school student, $150 to enter the third-place Teen Safe Driving Video Contest.

His video was in Teen Driver Safety Week, Teen Drivers and Speeding TikTok Video Contest. The Highway Safety Network hosted the competition during Teen Driver Safety Week in October. The scholarship was funded by the State Farm Teen Traffic Safety – Survive the Drive grant.

Ernst’s video depicts a conversation among friends about collision statistics and how they need to practice safe driving behaviours, such as buckling up and slowing down, when behind the wheel. The video can be viewed on the Highway Safety Network’s TikTok account (highwaysafetynetwork) or at Traffic Safety Tara on Facebook.
