Having a teenager that will be learning to drive or getting a drivers license soon can be very stressful. Even if your child has been driving for a few years a parents worry never ends. The scary part is auto crashes are the number one cause of death among teens in North America. Just last year our neighbor lost her daughter to a horrible crash. It still so heart breaking. Celebrate My Drive was created by State Farm to share the belief that safe driving is a lifelong commitment from the start. Thousands of students, family, friends and high school staff members have joined the effort. We’d love it if you could join in too.

Why you should Join Celebrate My Drive

About Celebrate My Drive:
Celebrate My Drive® is a different approach to a leading public health risk. Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and a teen’s first year on the road is the most dangerous. Using research as a guide, State Farm is approaching teen driver safety, a winnable public health battle, by engaging teens while they learn to drive in a supportive and positive way. It’s a community celebration of safe driving habits emphasizing the benefits of safe choices as teens celebrate the freedom that comes with getting a drivers’ license. Learn more about the initiative at www.celebratemydrive.com.
More than 1,300 U.S and Canadian schools have already registered to be part of the celebration. State Farm and Kelly encourage teens whose schools are not yet registered to ask a school administrator to go online by October 17, to sign up and stay involved by making the commitment to safe driving during the seventh annual National Teen Driver Safety Week, October 20-26, 2013.
As if winning a grant isn’t exciting enough just imagine how cool your school would be to host a concert featuring Kelly Clarkson. I saw her in Concert last year and she can really entertain a crowd. I love all her songs and had a great time. This such an important ’cause that we really need to get our kids involved. It’s so important to stress how it is imperative that they obey the rules of the road and take extra precautions when driving on our roads for their own safety and the safety of others.
I have 3 nieces getting their drivers license in the next year or two and I want to make sure this message reaches them. What are you going to do to make sure the Celebrate My Drive message reaches your teen?
