GERMANTOWN -- Students at a local high school have teamed up to promote safe driving for teens -- and their efforts could win their school a $100,000 prize.
"It promotes safe driving and why safe driving is important. The big message is for your friends for your family and for yourself," said Officer Toni Olson with the Germantown Police Department.
"You can vote every day with every valid email address that you have," said Olson.
The voting window opens on Monday, November 9th -- and runs through Friday, November 13th. Anyone 14 or older can take part.
"It's very, very exciting. We're definitely proud of what we've done and we really want to see the community step forward and vote and hopefully we'll get the grant," said Feilbach.
"The student council members are going to wear these shirts so people are noticing that they got to remember to do it everyday," said Jake Coulthurst, head of the Celebrate My Drive committee.
They will also be having an ice cream social to drum up support. They're hoping all the attention paid to the contest helps teens absorb its central message about safe driving.
"I think the kids see the t-shirts and they see the posters they see the lunchroom activities and it gets their curiosity going," said Olson.
