YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - A Yankton teenager has earned $10,000 as part of a safe driving campaign targeting young drivers.

The South Dakota Department of Public Safety on Friday said 16-year-old Adam Lange won the top prize in the contest involving the Lesson Learned SD web-based program.

The program consists of videos featuring South Dakota high school students participating in demonstrations that show what can happen when people sitting behind the wheel are distracted, don’t wear seatbelts or are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Drivers between the ages of 14 and 19 who watched the videos and answered safety questions were entered into a contest to win cash prizes. Adam was one of the more than 2,200 eligible entries.

The South Dakota Broadcasters Association sponsored the cash prizes.
