SMARTeen Driver kicks off National Teen Safe Driver Month with Art Contest.
As part of the Nevada kick-off celebration SMARTeen DRIVER founder, Sarah Lee Marks launched and funded a citywide art contest in collaboration with the Clark County School Districts’ Community-School Partnership program. “Beverly Mason was instrumental in helping get all the art and driver’s education instructors involved. Teachers Soren Anderson, Tony Kyriacou and Michael Grady really helped their young artists fulfill the concept of the theme:
“WHAT AUTO SAFETY MEANS TO ME.”
An awards ceremony was hosted by Findlay KIA where local, regional and national officials including Congresswoman Dina Titus and State Senator Mark Manendo addressed the crowd. First Place winner Amy Terry, 2nd Place Alia Ramsouer and 3rd place Conner Keating each received cash, gift cards, commendations and publication in the official comic book of SMARTeen DRIVER. The books are available FREE at any Findlay Toyota, KIA, Honda, FIAT or Chevrolet location.
