There has been a lot of talk about transportation and infrastructure lately, from debates among students, to lively policy discussions in Congress from both sides of the aisle, and on the presidential campaign trail. The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) would like to know what you think. Now in its sixth year, the “Student Transportation Video Contest” is open for entries, and students of all ages are encouraged to apply.

The top four videos — one winner in each age group of the two categories — will each be awarded a $500 cash prize, with the winners shown at the association's National Convention in Tucson, Ariz., Oct. 4 to 6. Sponsored by ARTBA's Research and Education Division (RED), the contest aims to raise awareness about infrastructure issues by challenging students to develop a brief video (2 to 4 minutes in length) exploring various topics such as the condition of America's transportation network, how to pay for new transportation investments, or how to move products and people more efficiently. This year's contest includes a new category for students to discuss their ideas for improving road safety.

Submissions will be judged by a panel of ARTBA members, in either the “General Transportation” or “Safety” categories and in one of two age groups, K-12, or post-secondary/college/graduate level.

Additional information can be found at www.artba.org/video-contest or by contacting ARTBA's Lital Shair Nada at 202/289-4434.
