S.A.D.D. Student Groups and Student Clubs:

In addition to the regular contest, there’s an incentive for S.A.D.D student groups and student clubs to get involved as well. Every month we will be looking for the most active group of students to push the message of "NO TEXTING" while driving. The S.A.D.D. groups will have to post their efforts on the official Facebook page in the form of a YouTube video link as an official entry. We want to see how active student groups really are. The level of creativeness is up to each student group.

The S.A.D.D student’s focus can also be community based, or peer to peer, but must be done as a group. Every 60 days one club will be rewarded with a monetary prize/gift for the previous month’s efforts. The amount of the prize will be determined solely by "iDrive" staff and coordinates.


  1. Must work as a group and be a member of S.A.D.D.
  2. Must push the "NO TEXTING" while driving message.
  3. Each group must film their own project/event, and then submit that video to Youtube. Once the video is uploaded to Youtube, copy & paste a link of your video to our official Facebook page as your submission. The title of the submission should have the name of the contest, your name, high school and the date. Example: "iDrive: John Doe – John J. High school/S.A.D.D – 10/20.2016." The official page is In the description tell us what your video is about, and name all group members that participated in the project.
  4. Project must be completed and posted via Youtube link on the official Facebook page by the last day of each month. *ALL posts must go to and students must "LIKE’ our page.
  5. Must use hashtag #idrivenotexting #nyautogiant #industrymuscle
