Published: Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013 11:52 a.m. CDT

Students at Clarke and Murray school districts are rallying community members to commit to safe driving.

Supporting Clarke and Murray high schools shows the public is working hard to reverse the startling statistic that car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens in the U.S. and Canada.

Clarke and Murray are committed to keeping teens safe on the road, and they are participating in Celebrate My DriveŽ, a program that’s about celebrating the fun of getting your driver’s license while teaching all drivers positive habits to help avoid car crashes.

People can help Clarke or Murray win a $100,000 grant and possibly a concert by Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson in their own town! Log on to www.celebratemydrive.com to make a safe driving commitment once a day, every day, between Oct. 18 and Oct. 26. The more safe driving commitments the community makes on behalf of Clarke or Murray, the better chance to win $100,000 and host the Kelly Clarkson concert.

About Celebrate My Drive:

Celebrate My DriveŽ is a different approach to a leading public health risk. Car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens, and a teen’s first year on the road is the most dangerous. Using research as a guide, State Farm 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 drivers’ license. Learn more about the initiative at www.celebratemydrive.com.
