First Annual No Zombie Texting Awards

The “No Zombie Texting” educational video contest is a program to create a youth-oriented safety video on the dangers of texting and driving. After the May 2018 Ride/Walk of Silence — in remembrance of cyclists and pedestrians who have been injured or killed sharing the road — the Governor’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board and Muscle Powered hosted the awards. The top three public service announcements were announced in the Brewery Arts Center’s Black Box Theater, where a substantial assembly of spectators gathered to view the video awards.

First place: Team Petrova, by Kasandra Medina-Torres and Gisela Vazquez

Second place: Team Worm Boys, by Samuel Johnson, Tristen Quintero and Ethan Snyder

Third place: Team Ad, Ast and Alfredo, by Alfredo Chissotti
