Allstate Insurance Company, under its Rider Protection Project, is currently running a contest focused on making the roads a safer place to ride.
A six-person panel, comprised of some of the top names in motorcycling, reviewed the applications submitted over the summer and narrowed the list to fifteen; those ideas and programs are listed on Allstate Motorcycle’s Facebook page with descriptions of each.
The public can now vote for favorite ideas by logging onto Facebook, liking Allstate Motorcycle, and then vote by clicking on a thumbnail image under the Good Ride tab. Voting will continue throughout the month of October and Facebook fans of Allstate can vote daily.
The ideas from the fifteen finalists range in scope education at all levels to safety stickers for car mirrors and reflectors on guard rails to a fun game for kids (and adults) spotting different brands of motorcycles on the road. The thumbnails on Allstate Motorcycle’s Facebook page give a complete description of each project.
Allstate Good Ride Grant program judges are Allstate’s Powersports Unit VP, Keith Rutman; Rick Fairless, custom builder; Motorcycle-USA editor, Bryan Harley; Rusty Creed, an Allstate agency owner; Indian Motorcycle’s marketing director, Rod Krois; and Motorcycle Superstore president, Don Becklin.
The awarding of the grants will be determined by tallying the scores for the fifteen contestants with the judges’ scores accounting for 80% of the overall score and the votes from Facebook accounting for 20%. The five finalists with the highest overall contest score on October 31, 2013 will each receive a $5,000 grant to help put their ideas into action.
