Danbury High School students in various leadership clubs at the school are seeing their efforts pay off. Several students have been active in raising awareness of the dangers of reckless and distracted driving as part of a safe driving campaign.
Danbury has, for the most part, been in first place in the Celebrate My Drive contest among 3,500 other schools nationwide. But the numbers are close and the students are reminding people to pledge daily to drive safely.
If Danbury stays in first place through Saturday, the school will be given a $100,000 grant from State Farm Insurance. Danbury High School is one of only three schools in Connecticut participating. To date, the DHS students have garnered more than 68,000 pledges from people to drive safely. The leader board is updated on a regular basis.
