Denham Springs High School students Cade Johnson, Haley Johnson and Peyton Hubbard registered parents for the campaign sponsored by State Farm on Oct. 21.

The campaign encourages teens to make positive choices as they start driving, a news release from the school said. Parents and teachers were asked to commit not to text while driving. Denham Springs High school encourages the community to join the campaign to help raise awareness, the release said. Also, the school with the most participation will win a grant. The table was set up during the Seventh Ward Elementary’s Fall Parent Night.
