LANCASTER -- A Lancaster County high school is competing in a safe driving awareness campaign, but it needs help from the community to score grant money.

Through, those pledged are accepted simply by signing up online. 

In Penn Manor High School classrooms, students are focusing on a different aspect of safe driving each day. Videos, similar to PSAs, are produced by the high school television classes and aired each morning.

So far, about 3,000 people have taken the online pledge. The goal is to reach 6,000. The prizes for top schools revolve around grants that can go toward safe driving education and other district programs. The top 10 schools will get $100,000. Ninety schools will get $10,000 grants. Two schools will get concerts performed by Kelly Clarkson. 

Anyone over the age of 14 can cast a pledge vote online. They simply need to select Penn Manor for the district to be awarded the pledge point. Penn Manor is the only school in Lancaster County involved in the contest.Teens pledge to drive safely
