DTRIC Insurance kicks off high school student video contest

HONOLULU — DTRIC Insurance has launched its first-ever Drive Aloha Video Contest for high-school students from across the state.

“Hawai‘i’s students are incredibly adept at developing videos for their social-media content, and we’re asking them to use their talents to share the Drive Aloha message, which will help create safer and friendlier roads across our islands,” said Takuya “Taku” Mitsueda, president and CEO of DTRIC Insurance.

“We’re excited to see how our future drivers and young talented creatives demonstrate how they Drive Aloha.”

Now through Nov. 13, public and private high-school students are invited to submit videos online at

All approved videos will be uploaded to the contest page for public voting from Nov. 14 through 20.

The top 10 videos earning the highest number of votes will be selected as finalists.

First place will receive $2,500 for their school and the second-place winner will receive $1,000 for their school.

Submissions can be made from individuals or schools, and all participants must be enrolled in a Hawai‘i public or private high school.

Submissions must fulfill the following requirements:

• Videos must be 60 seconds or less;

• Work submitted must be the entrant’s original, previously unpublished work that does not infringe upon the rights of any third party;

DTRIC Insurance launched the Drive Aloha initiative in Aug. 2016 to educate and encourage drivers, pedestrians and cyclists to practice safe and courteous behavior and create safer, friendlier roadways across the islands.

Drive Aloha encourages people to take the safety pledge to be courteous drivers, embrace positive behaviors and practice the aloha spirit to make the roads safer and friendlier for everyone.
