I am writing to ask you all for a little help. IKM Manning High School in Manning has registered to participate in a Teen Drivers Safety Contest that is being sponsored by State Farm(Celebrate My Drive). My office is partnering with IKM Manning to help promote safe driving decisions and bring awareness to what can happen if those safe driving decisions aren’t made. State Farm has decided that they will award $2,350,000 in grants nationwide to participating schools for their commitment to safer driving habits based on an online contest of votes (commitments).
The help I need is outlined in the promotional notes below. The contest goes from October 18 to October 26. It is important to log on every day between the 18th and 26th and cast your vote (Your vote is actually just answering a safe driving question). The kids of this school are very excited to try to generate enough votes to not only win a grant from State Farm but to ultimately win the grand prize and get a free Kelly Clarkson concert in their school gymnasium. We are competing against around 1400 schools across the country for 1 of 50 grants and 1 of 1 Kelly Clarkson concerts. There are 2 school categories (Large is over 750 students 9-12 & Small is under 750 students 9-12). IKM Manning has a limited number of students so we are going to need the entire district to support this and as many friends and family that are willing to help as well.
As you would imagine, the positive response that we have already gotten from the IKM Manning community has been great. It is important to know that by registering with your email address, you are not going to receive a bunch of spam emails from State Farm. In fact, they assured me that the email addresses will be deleted as soon as the contest is completed. Also, you can vote once per day from every email address that you have. Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. It is very simple to register and even easier to cast your vote.
Please let me know if you have any questions and please feel free to forward this message to anyone that you think would be willing to help out. Thanks
