VIDEO Each year, our "Streets, Art, SAFE" Competition honors high school students helping to combat the #1 killer of children in the United States -- traffic collisions.
Last Wednesday, May 17th, 2017, Streets Are For Everyone held an Oscar's style awards ceremony for the student filmmakers of this phenomenal and educational program. This program pairs high school students with Hollywood filmmakers to educate others through the production and making of traffic safety PSAs.

The awards ceremony itself was held at LAPD Headquarters in DTLA and the presenters included: Olympian and World Champion Cyclist, David Brinton, Actor Jake Isham, Capt. Lopez of the LAPD, Kerry Kasem, LAPD Assistant Chief Girmala and Veteran screen actor, Ed Begley, Jr.
