SmartDrive rewards schools for safe driving initiatives
Focused on raising awareness this prom and graduation season, the SmartDrive Foundation, along with its sponsors -- Delmarva Broadcasting Company, State Farm, Wilmington University and SkyZone -- challenged high-school students in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania to sign the SmartDrive PROMise to practice safe and sober driving behavior, be good passengers, wear their seatbelts and drive attentively.
Twenty-six schools participated, and nearly 12,000 students signed the PROMise. Those schools in each region with the greatest percentage of PROMise participation won cash prizes for their prom or after-prom. This year’s Pennsylvania winners are Oxford High School, Avon Grove High School, and Garnet Valley High School.
Northern Delaware winners are the Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security, Salesianum School, and a tie between Archmere Academy, Newark High School, and Cab Calloway School of the Arts. Southern Delaware winners are Lake Forest High School, Caesar Rodney High School, and Milford High School. Maryland winners are Bohemia Manor High School in Chesapeake City, and St. Michaels High School in St. Michaels.
Founded by Delmarva Broadcasting Company, SmartDrive is in its ninth year of operation and has served more than 70,000 students in 124 high schools. For more information, visit www.smartdriveusa.org.
