Harrisburg High School Wins $100K in Safe-Driving Contest
HARRISBURG, S.D. (AP) — Students at Harrisburg High School have won a safe-driving contest sponsored by State Farm Insurance.
The insurer awarded the school $100,000. The Argus Leader reports $22,000 will go toward safe driving education, as part of the contest's rules, while the rest will be divvied up among various charities and causes chosen by a committee of students.
The school is one of 22 across the country that were named winners of the Celebrate My Drive contest, which promotes safe driving education. Participating schools have to submit videos showing their commitment to driving carefully.
Principal Kevin Lein says the school wants to help people in the Harrisburg School District community until the money "runs out."
