Posted: Updated:
BIG TIMBER -

Ethan Peterson is a teenager with a message: avoid distracted driving at all costs.

Ethan lost his father when he was just a year old.  Ethan's father decided to drink then get behind the wheel.

Ethan, along with his mother Melissa Bartelt have made it one of their life mission's to educate people on the dangers of distracted driving.

Ethan entered the Toyota Teen Challenge. The contest urges teens to make a video showing how they are helping teens in their community to be safer drivers.

Ethan, along with nine other finalists are in the running for three prizes, to the top prize being $15,000 and their PSA being re-shot so it's TV ready.
