West Feliciana High School staff and students have a chance at winning a $100,000 grant for their efforts to keep teens safe on the road.
They are asking everyone 14 and older to visit www.celebratemydrive.com once a day through Oct. 24 to commit to safe driving as part of State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive campaign, a news release from State Farm said.
The more safe driving commitments the community makes, the better the school’s chance to win a $100,000 grant and a private concert by The Band Perry, the release said.
State Farm and West Feliciana High School recognize getting a driver’s license is an important and joyous time, the release said.
Celebrate My Drive celebrates this milestone with new drivers by encouraging them to make positive choices like driving with eyes on the road and two hands on the wheel.
“Using research as a guide, State Farm is approaching teen driver safety, a winnable public health battle, by engaging teens while they learn to drive in a supportive and positive way,” the release states. “It’s a community celebration of safe driving habits emphasizing the benefits of safe choices as teens celebrate the freedom that comes with getting a driver’s license.”
West Feliciana High is one of 3,283 schools competing for prizes in the State Farm program.
