Fort Loramie Junior/Senior High School in running for $100,000, needs community votes


Staff report



FORT LORAMIE — Fort Loramie Junior/Senior High School was selected as one of the Celebrate My Drive 100 finalists.

Celebrate My Drive and #Drive2n2, initiatives by State Farm, encourage teens to make positive choices as they begin driving. Schools all across the country were given an opportunity to make a 30-second video that incorporated the 2N2, two eyes on the road, two hands on the wheel, message.

Fort Loramie put together a 30-second video, submitted it to State Farm, and were selected as one of the top 100 finalists by a panel of judges. The contest saw over 500 schools from around the country submit videos.

All 100 finalist videos are up on www.celebratemydrive.com and can be voted on through Nov. 13. Eligible voters must be 14 years or older to participate and are allowed to vote once per day per email address, per the official rules.

Eleven large high schools (751 students or more in grades 9-12 combined) receiving the most votes will win $100,000 and 11 small high schools (750 students or less in grades 9-12 combined) receiving the most votes will win $100,000.

Fort Loramie’s video submission not only made the top 100, but Fort Loramie was the only small school from Ohio to be chosen.

The band Echosmith will choose the grand-prize winner, based on judging criteria, and play a concert at their high school.

The official rules and all facts about the contest can be found at www.celebratemydrive.com. Fort Loramie’s video can be found on the site as well. It is also posted on the homepage of the school’s website, http://www.loramie.k12.oh.us/.
