Franklin Regional seeks support for State Farm grant

Friday, Oct. 18, 2013, 3:21 p.m.
 

Franklin Regional High School is one of at least nine area schools vying for one of 10 $100,000 grants from State Farm.

Students kicked off their “Celebrate My Drive” campaign Friday with a “Buckling for Bucks” event at 7 a.m. Students who buckled their seat belts on their drive to school received $1.

The school began collecting online pledges at midnight Friday as part of the competition. The 100 schools that receive the most pledges for safe driving — from students and community members — will receive grants from State Farm and will be entered to win a private concert by pop singer Kelly Clarkson.

Pledges can be signed online at www.celebratemydrive.com until 1 a.m. Oct. 27.
