Local School Wins National Traffic Safety Contest

A local school has won a contest as part of the National Youth Safety Traffic Month.

Stuarts Draft High School was entered in the Act Out Loud competition by its SADD club.

It won first place, which means the school is getting $10,000 through a grant from Allstate.

The Act Out Loud contest involves more than 200 high schools across the United States encouraging schools to develop and implement youth-led activism projects to address teen traffic safety.

SDHS students taught their peers about the dangers of distracted driving, specifically texting while driving, through posters, a golf course simulator, watching documentaries and more.

School officials say the money will help support other future programs and events to keep kids safer.
