Slinger High School was picked to represent one of the 50 "big schools" (over 751 students) to participate in State Farm's Celebrate My Drive competition.  State Farm created this event to encourage safe driving.  Through Celebrate My Drive, they have been promoting their slogan "Drive 2N2."  This means that everyone should be driving with 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel. Slinger High School's Student Council created a 30-second submission video in order to apply for the Celebrate My Drive competition.  State Farm approved of our video and the competition began.  From Monday, November 9 to Friday, November 13, voting has taken and will take place in all of the chosen schools.  Participants had to enter their email on every day. Every email used to vote receives a note to confirm that vote.  Every time someone votes, they are pledging to always drive safely.  The top 11 schools with the most votes at the end of this school week will receive $100,000 and a chance for an Echosmith concert at their school.  


Slinger students, staff, and family members have been working tirelessly to support their school. Currently, Slinger is in first place.  The high school has been promoting this event to everyone in the community, as it would be a great opportunity for the school.  Each Slinger High School club that sends 10 students to vote for an hour will receive $100 if Slinger finishes in the top 11.  Family and friends are also encouraged to vote to help support Slinger High School and the Slinger school district!
