Danbury High School is putting up a good fight in a Teen Safe Driving contest. The students had been switching back and forth from the leader spot with a school from Iowa.
But with just hours left in the campaign to earn the school a $100,000 grant from State Farm Insurance, two schools from Tennessee have bumped to Danbury to third place. Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton said in a tweet that the City was in contact with State Farm about those two schools. He said they may be a "bot", or web robot, is a software that runs automated tasks over the internet. State Farm says they are looking into it.
In an effort to help the students with their awareness effort, the City sent out a reverse 311 call Friday reminding people to take the safe driving pledge at votedanbury.com. As of Saturday morning, the students have garnered over 163,000 votes.
The contest ends Saturday at 11:59pm central time.
