WOOLWICH TWP. — Kingsway Regional High School student Allison Ragonese was the cat’s meow at the 13th annual Gloucester County Highway Safety Video Production Contest, winning first place by casting a black and white tabby as a distracted driver, gobbling a plate of kibble at the steering wheel of a car and pawing at a cell phone and a radio dial.
The contest is sponsored by the Gloucester County Highway Safety Task Force, a public-private advisory group to the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office.
High school and middle school students were challenged to produce a 30-second video that carries a message about the hazards of inattentive driving.
