Win Grants and Promote Safe Driving with #CelebrateMyDrive

Car crashes have been the number one killer of our teenagers for more than 30 years. With cell phones, distracted driving is causing even more deaths! Join #celebratemydrive to promote driving safety and win GRANTS (they are giving ten (10) – $100,000 grants AND ninety (90) – $25,000 grants!). [button href=”” primary=”true” centered=”true” newwindow=”true”]Register Your School Now![/button]

 Join the State Farm 2014 Celebrate My Drive Program by registering your school by October 7. After October 7 you will have your students and parents take online safe driving pledges as they learn more about driving safely.

What can you win?

As you can see in the video above, 2 schools (one larger school and one smaller school) will win a concert from the band Perry. They are also giving away:

  • 90 grants of $25,000 each
  • 10 grants of $100,000 each

This is a great cause and can help your school when times are tough. But talk about tough times, nothing is as bad as the death of a student for a senseless auto accident (or the death of a student at all.)

Use the school toolkit with flyers, press releases, and daily announcements already written for you. (The registration toolkit rocks.) The one week between October 7 and October 15 gives you time to get the word out so plan your school announcements accordingly!



Teach kids to keep 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel and save lives!

As much as we love technology, we MUST help kids learn to pay attention and drive safely. As part of the campaign, State Farm is promoting 2N2® — 2 eyes on the road, 2 hands on the wheel.

When Kids Are Safe Drivers We All Win

We have a bench on our campus of a precious child who died many years a go in such a senseless accident. Your school probably has automobile accident tragedies too.

Whatever comes out of this, if you can have students focus on driving and keep 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel – THAT IS AN AWESOME THING.

So… why not? Save a life. BIG WIN. Get money – not as big a win as saving the life of a child but still a WIN.
