Students in Slatington and Walnutport are rallying community members to commit to safe driving. Supporting Northern Lehigh High School shows drivers are working hard to reverse the startling statistic that car crashes are the number one killer of teens in the U.S. and Canada.
Northern Lehigh High School is committed to keeping teens safe on the road, and that's why the school is participating in Celebrate My Drive, a program that's all about celebrating the fun of getting your driver's license while teaching drivers positive habits to help avoid car crashes.
"I believe that Celebrate My Drive is an innovative way to bring safe driving awareness to our students and surrounding community," says Robert Vlasaty, NLHS principal.
Residents can help Northern Lehigh High School win a $100,000 grant and possibly a concert by Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson. To participate, log on to www.celebratemydrive.com to make a safe driving commitment once each day, between Oct. 18-26. The more safe driving commitments the community makes on behalf of Northern Lehigh High School the better its chance to win $100,000 and host the Clarkson concert.
About Celebrate My Drive:
Celebrate My Drive is a different approach to a leading public health risk. Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and a teen's first year on the road is the most dangerous. Using research as a guide, State Farm Insurance is approaching teen driver safety, a winnable public health battle, by engaging teens while they learn to drive in a supportive and positive way. 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.
