16-year-old from Melbourne has won the grand prize in the 10th annual Drive2Life PSA Contest, sponsored by The National Road Safety Foundation.

Madison Henry, a junior at Melbourne Central Catholic H.S., sent a script for a public service message about the importance of all passengers wearing seat belts. She won the top prize of $1,000 out of more than 1,190 entries from throughout the U.S. As part of her prize, Henry was to be flown to New York to work with an Emmy Award-winning production team to shoot and edit her script into a 30-second PSA that will air on more than 160 TV stations nationwide.  

In addition to being broadcast in June on the nationally-syndicated TV show "Teen Kids News," Henry's PSA and story will be featured in select fall issues of Scholastic Classroom Magazines.

The winning PSA will be available for viewing and download on The National Road Safety Foundation's websites at and
