Public can vote for Singer’s anti-texting artwork

Rebecca Singer's artwork is vying to win the Act Out Loud contest.

The clock is ticking to vote for a Madison teenager’s design that discourages texting while driving.

Rebecca Singer, a freshman at Discovery Middle School, designed artwork for a ‘Safe-Tee T-shirt’ in the Act Out Loud contest. Singer’s artwork has earned a spot in the top 25 entries in Alabama. She now has a change to win nationally.

Feb. 29 is the last day to vote. The Act Out Loud contest is affiliated with National Youth Traffic Safety Month (actoutloud.org).

The organization cites car crashes as the no. 1 cause of death and injuries for teenagers in the United States. Contest organizers hope to change these statistics by raising awareness to dangers of distracted driving.

Anyone can vote for Singer as the national winner on Facebook. In Facebook, go to the Act Out Loud page, view the Top 25 album and click Like for Singer’s artwork.

Singer’s artwork shows a blue automobile that has crashed head on into a tree. Its caption reads, “Don’t text while you drive or you won’t be alive.”

Singer is a student in Patty Collier’s English class at Discovery. “Rebecca designed this shirt for Act Out Loud to encourage teenagers to not use electronic devices while driving,” Collier said.

“Rebecca’s design won the school contest, and it’s now entered into the national contest. If selected, her design will be used for the Safe-Tee T-shirt,” Collier said. “We would love for our student to receive this honor in recognition of her talent and hard work.”

“Imagine the honor of our student winning this contest and bringing yet more recognition to our children’s talents and the honor of a national winner to the state of Alabama,” Collier said.

School teams competing in Act Out Loud are vying for prizes like a video camera and as much as $10,000. The Allstate Foundation is the sponsor.
