Pasco High School Students Win Safe Driving Grant Again
PASCO, Wash. -- For the second year in a row, students at Pasco High School have been rewarded for their efforts to promote safe driving among teens.
Four students in Leslie Bell's advanced marketing class were presented with a check for almost $2,000 on Friday. State Farm Insurance sponsors the grant program, which is called "Shift into Safety".
The students won the grant money for their campaign proposal called "5 Alive", which is intended to alert teen drivers of the five biggest factors of unsafe driving. Those include speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, driving under the influence, talking on a cell phone, and not staying alert.
The money will be used for "5 Alive" advertisements, pens, shirts, and a safety assembly in May.
