Kimberly, Neil, and Reid Perry, collectively known as The Band Perry, recently teamed up with “Celebrate My Drive,” a project created by State Farm to promote safe driving. Statistically, automobile accidents are the number one cause of death for teenagers in North America, and, as such, State Farm seeks to implement safe driving tactics (such as “2N2″, or two eyes on the road and two hands on the wheel) in hopes of saving lives.
For the second year in a row, “Celebrate My Drive” will up the ante in promoting vehicular safety October 15-24, 2014 when local State Farm agents will host student-focused events across North America. During this time (or commitment period), your community will be encouraged to make safe driving commitments on behalf of your high school. One hundred schools across the country will have the opportunities to win grants in the amounts of Twenty-Five Thousand or One Hundred Thousand Dollars. The more commitments made, the better the chances a high school has of winning a grant. And, here is where the country music twist comes in … two schools will win a private concert performed by one of country music’s most celebrated trios, The Band Perry.
Head over to the Celebrate My Drive website and register your school (or check to see if your school has previously been registered). Then, from October 15-24, spread the word around town, receive commitments from students, teachers, parents, siblings, and other community members, and The Band Perry just may be coming to celebrate your drive with you!
We would love to know if any #CMchat followers receive grants and/or one of the two special concerts being awarded by State Farm. Follow us on Twitter @CMchatLIVE and let us know if your school successfully celebrates its drive.
