Entry deadline for Lesson Learned teen safe driving campaign is Saturday

PIERRE, S.D.(DRGNews)- South Dakota high school students have until Saturday to enter this year’s Lesson Learned teen safe driving campaign.

Office of Highway Safety Director Amanda Kurth says this is the 6th year of the joint effort by her agency and the South Dakota Broadcasters Association.

Kurth says it shouldn’t take long for eligible students to get registered.

As incentive, the South Dakota Broadcasters organization is providing $20,000 in prize money.

Kurth says students can also share the quiz with friends to get extra entries into the prize drawing.

Last year’s winner was Austin Faw, a senior at Edmunds Central High School in Roscoe. He donated the $10,000 school share to his school’s athletic department.

To participate, students must take the safe driving quiz at https://drivesafesd.com/lesson-learned. Once completed, their names will be entered into the drawing.

The South Dakota Office of Highway Safety is an agency of the state Department of Public Safety.
