This is part of a sponsored collaboration with State Farm and Latina Mom Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
The Celebrate My Drive® campaign was created by State Farm in 2012 to share the belief that safe driving is a lifelong commitment from the start. Since last year, thousands of students, family, friends and high school staff members have joined the party.
Celebrate My Drive® is a chance for communities to rally around young drivers and encourage them to make safe driving choices every time they’re behind the wheel. With good reason – auto crashes are the number one cause of death among teens in North America.
Overall the participation in risky behaviors while driving—such as not wearing a seat belt, riding in a car driven by someone who had been drinking, or texting while driving—is higher among Hispanic teens according to the CDC’s Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance. Celebrate My Drive promotes responsible driving practices like 2N2®: 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel.
This year, the Celebrate My Drive program will reward schools and communities for making safe driving commitments. Those schools and students that commit to safe teen driving will make their school eligible to win grant money for school programs and a private concert by a GRAMMY® Award nominee band!! Amazing!
We encourage communities to get their schools signed up at celebratemydrive.com. Registration closes on Oct. 7th so you still have time to sign up. Teens and community members can commit to safe driving once a day every day from October 15th – 24th in support of their favorite high school. The 100 high schools generating the most safe-driving commitments during the Oct. 15-24th time frame will win grants and the top two schools will win concerts! Two grand prize winning schools will receive a private concert by a GRAMMY® Award nominee band. The 100 high schools with the most online safe driving commitments will win a grant award of $25,000 or $100,000.
Check and see if your high school is registered here. If not, please contact your school administrator to encourage them register your school. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity and the chance to get the word out on safe driving for teens.
