Why is The Kiefer Foundation making this video?

The senior class of 2020 has lost a lot due to Covid-19. No prom, graduation ceremony, spring break, final memories with friends. These are rites of passage when moving into adulthood.

We have come to know the Class of 2020 as a resilient group with fire and passion to change the world. What better way to light a fire under the movement of distracted driving than to showcase the big things the Class of 2020 is looking to accomplish?

Just like Mitchel, these kids want to make a difference.

All it takes is resolve to change and distracted driving can be a thing of the past. We rely on young people like the Class of 2020 to lead that movement.

With this video, we want to celebrate the hopes and dreams of the Class of 2020 while continuing to draw attention to the epidemic that is distracted driving.

We look forward to all of your video submissions and creating a moving piece to help change the world!

Mitchel Kiefer planned to change the world.

Then his life was cut short when he was rear-ended by a distracted driver while returning to Michigan State University on Sept. 19, 2016. Now, as a way to get our Class of 2020 involved in our mission to end distracted driving, The Kiefer Foundation wants to hear how YOU plan to change the world.

We are putting the best submissions into a 1-minute video to spread as much awareness around distracted driving as we can.

To be a part of our project, submit your video using the form above.
