Teenagers from Lincoln, Montgomery, Warren and Pike counties in Missouri are invited to make a video that shows teens around the country how to be a safer passenger and driver.

The "Take it from a Teen" video challenge is being offered by the Lincoln County Health Department as part of a Safe Kids grant. Themes include slowing down, buckling up, not texting, and not driving under the influence.

"We all understand the dangers of unsafe driving, and this is an excellent opportunity to teenagers to share their stories and potentially participate in a national contest," said Sarah Valenza with the Lincoln County Health Department.

The submission deadline is February 1, 2018, and more information is available at
