The Peer Helpers at Granite Hills High School received a $500 check on Tuesday, after taking first place in the Teen-to-Teen Safe Driving Campaign Southern California Contest, sponsored by Safety Center Incorporated and the Allstate Foundation. The group plans to put the funds toward the purchase of materials for their monthly Cougars United events.
The contest comes in an effort to reduce distracted driving and to create youth-led teen safe driving campaigns for schools. Students were expected to create a safe driving campaign and to conduct a survey to see how their efforts increased safe driving decisions.
