Allstate Foundation announces winners of Safe Teen Driving Contest

Posted by lapearce on May 28, 2009

It went widely unknown in this nation, but May was national Youth Traffic Safety Month. In honor of this, The Allstate Foundation and National Organization for Youth Safety held a contest called 2009 Act out Loud: Raising Voice for Safe Teen Driving. The contest encouraged teens to conduct safe driving projects during May. 20 teams took part in the competition nation-wide.

After 80,000 votes were cast, the top three high schools rose to the top:

3rd place Coral Springs Charter, Coral Springs, FL prize: $3,000

2nd place Massapequa High School, Massapequa, NY $5,000

1st place Anoka High School, Anoka, MN $10,000

The team from Anoka won with their project “Get the 411 on Teen Driving! Stay Connected! Save Teen lives!” Which used video, as well as information about Minnesota’s driving laws to help educate teens about safe driving.

Anoka High School plans on using their prise money to fund school and community groups that educate teens about traffic safety. Second place Massapequa high School plans to buy a drunk driving simulator to use in driver’s training (great idea kids!)

Congratulations to the winners and all of the schools who took part. You kids are making a difference!

Oh, and in other news, Allstate is hiring a corporate relations manager for their teen driving foundation. I wish I was qualified (and that the job was in Calif.) Job details
