Lemont High School supports State Farm “Celebrate My Drive” program
On Saturday, September 15, State Farm will launch “Celebrate My Drive” - a signature program focused on teen driver safety. The program is designed to celebrate the milestone of a teen getting his/her driver’s license and committing to stay safe behind the wheel. The initial “Celebrate My Drive” event will take place from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on September 15 at Yorktown Center Mall in Lombard.
Lemont High School supports State Farm’s new “Celebrate My Drive” program. One high school that participates in the “Celebrate My Drive” program will win a $100,000 grant, and one lucky teen (ages 15-18) who visits Yorktown Center Mall on September 15 will win a new car! In addition to the safe driving message, “Celebrate My Drive” will include many other prizes and giveaways, as well as stage performances and celebrity guest appearances.
State Farm will have on hand two driving simulators and a photo booth, and teens will be able to design their own vanity license plate keychains. The Illinois State Police will be present with its rollover simulator, two seatbelt convincers, and two golf carts for a distracted/impaired driving simulation.
The Illinois Secretary of State’s Office will discuss Graduated Driver’s Licensing; the Illinois Emergency Nurses Association will deliver a message focusing on teen driver safety; and the Illinois African American Family Commission and National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) each will employ distracted driving simulators.
Miss Illinois will appear from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson will be on hand from noon-2 p.m., and former American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart will appear from 2:30-4:30 p.m. True Star Media students will make stage performances and conduct on-camera interviews with teens and parents.
