End the Trend Finalists Announced!


For drivers, taking your attention away from the road, even for just a split second, could be dangerous, even fatal. The End the Trend campaign, which was developed by the Sumner Group, is designed to help cut down distractions on the road – such as texting, taking selfies or taking an eye off the road. Participants each created an awareness video, and competed for views.

There have been over 97,000 video views and 2,400 shares since End the Trend began!

Here are the 5 finalists:

Ryan Day – New Bern High School

Havelock High School Football Team

Mia Freeland and Caitlyn Gross – New Bern High School

Ryan Dewan – Belmont Abbey College

Pitt County Teen Safe Drivers – DH Conley

The Judges have decided the top 3 award winners and they will be announced at a special awards luncheon on Tuesday, June 9, 2015.

Sponsors for the campaign include Phil Ford, Kellum Law Firm, Cella Ford, Wirth Chiropractic and WNC-TV.
