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

The school is a finalist in the competition and has the chance to win possibly $5,000 or $10,000.

The contest is a part of the National Youth Safety Traffic Month through a grant from Allstate.

The students taught their peers about the dangers of distracted driving, specifically texting while driving.

They did things like making posters, using a golf course simulator, watching documentaries, etc.

The school has been in the top 20 recently, and hopes to be one of the ten schools receiving money.

If it wins, officials say the money will help support other programs and events like this in the future, keeping the kids safer.

"We've talked about doing scholarship programs for the kids to give them rewards for explaining how sports or music or choir help them make better decisions. We've talked about bringing in anti-bullying programs, bringing in more simulators, it just opens the door wide for what we can do in our student body," says Martha Mikell, the SADD club sponsor.
