Slinger H.S. awarded $25K for commitment to safe driving

SLINGER (WITI) -- Slinger High School was the recipient on Monday, November 25th of a $25,000 grant from State Farm Insurance. The money was awarded to the school as a thank you for its safe driver commitments through the Celebrate My Drive program created by State Farm.

One hundred schools were eligible to receive a grant ranging from $25,000 to $100,000. Slinger was in the top 100, and was awarded a $25,000 grant.

In addition to collecting commitments to be safe drivers, the Celebrate My Drive program recognizes a very important and joyous occasion in the life of young people - learning to drive! Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and a teen’s first year on the road is the most dangerous.

Slinger is one of three Wisconsin high schools accepting Celebrate My Drive grants of $25,000 each.
