Moffat County High Receives $25,000 Prize

Celebrate My DriveMoffat County High School principal Kelly McCormick announced at a student assembly Tuesday that the school will receive $25,000 from the State Farm Celebrate My Drive Program. Moffat County High is one of only 100 schools nationwide, and the only school in Colorado, to win a cash award this year from the Program, which is part of an online driver safety awareness campaign. The school participated in a contest where the grand prize was $100,000 plus a concert by country music artist, The Band Perry. During the contest anyone could vote online daily to support the school of their choice. Moffat County High, competing in the small school category, was ranked near the top-10 at one point in the competition. Voting ended in late October but the winning schools were not officially notified until last week. McCormick plans to form a committee of students, faculty and community members to decide where and how the money will be allocated. The only stipulation to receiving the money was that at least 10% of it must be spent on driver safety. McCormick offered that those specified funds may be allocated to students through drivers education scholarships.
