Because the District 206 We Act high school student group is committed to keeping teens safe on the road, it is participating in Celebrate My Drive, a program created by State Farm in 2012 to share the belief that safe driving is a lifelong commitment from the start.

Celebrate My Drive is a chance for communities to rally around young drivers and encourage them to make safe driving choices every time they’re behind the wheel.

During the week of October 18-26, students, parents, teachers and staff, and community members can log on once a day to, find Jefferson High School under the School Search section, and make a commitment to stay safe on the road.

By doing so, they can help Jefferson High School (JHS) in Alexandria win a grant of $100,000 or $25,000 and a grand prize concert by Grammy Award-winner Kelly Clarkson.

We Act is an outreach of We Day, sponsored by District 206 Community Education, an initiative that strives to inspire young people to care about social issues and to take action as agents of social change.

The District 206 We Act high school student group consists of 15 9th graders from Discovery Middle School in Alexandria and 30 11th graders at JHS.

This group has taken a year-long commitment to service projects in an effort to be locally active and globally aware. The safe driving campaign is the first of their service project commitments.
