A Buffalo teenager has taken second prize in a nationwide video contest to raise awareness against distracted driving.

Anna Blatto, 17, a student at City Honors High School, will be awarded a $200 gift card from Amazon and she won a $1,000 donation for her school. Her video, which begins with her eating and texting behind the wheel and ends with a funeral in Forest Lawn, can be seen on Youtube.

In the contest, sponsored by I Drive Safely, an online provider of driver education training programs, 78 students in 28 states created videos about the dangers of distracted driving.
