Responsible driving practices are greatly supported by State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive program and The Band Perry. The group has decided to perform a private concert in hometowns for winners of the Celebrate My Drive program. Until October 7, U.S. and Canadian high school administrators can sign up at www.celebratemydrive.com and have students commit to driving safely from October 15-24. Two grand prize winning schools will have a concert and runner-ups will earn grants up to $25,000 or $100,000.
Celebrate My Drive wants teenagerss and the adults in their lives to discuss safety behind the wheel and how to reduce the risk of a car crash. The main source of death of teenagers is car crashes. These crashes could have been avoided had proper precautions been made and knowledge about what happens if one doesn’t buckle up or pay attention to the road could have been discussed.
“Getting a driver’s license is a major milestone in a young adult’s life, and The Band Perry is the perfect partner to help celebrate it,” said Leif Roll, Marketing Vice President for State Farm. “Teens, in particular, connect with music in a major way, so it only makes sense to partner with one of the biggest acts in music to celebrate this new generation of teen drivers. As a leader in auto safety, we feel Celebrate My Drive has proved to be a positive way to help educate teens and their parents about teen driver safety.”
