Sturgis students win safe driving campaign competition

Students at Sturgis High School took part in a safe driving campaign recently and their collective effort paid off.
The group of students who ran the campaign won first place out of 55 schools in Michigan during the competition. Strive for a Safer Drive is a public-private partnership between Ford Driving Skills for Life and the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning.
Students received $1,000 to create a teen-led traffic safety campaign to educate their fellow classmates. At Sturgis High School, students called their campaign “Sturgis Strong” and chose February as their campaign month.
The campaign included a driving simulator and an assembly featuring guest speaker Jim Freybler.
For winning the competition, the group will receive a $1,500 cash award to spend on anything they want for the school.
A team from Three Rivers took second place.
