BEAVERCREEK — Greene County Safe Communities recently announced Beavercreek High School as the winner of its annual Thanksgiving Seat Belt Challenge. Eight local high schools participated in the challenge.

According to a release about the award, the contest seeks to raise awareness about seat belt use to encourage students to buckle up every time they get in a vehicle. The week prior to each high school’s Thanksgiving break, announcements about the dangers of driving unbelted, statistics and encouraging messages were provided, and an unannounced check was completed at the school that week. The high school with the highest percentage of students buckled as they were leaving at the end of the school day won the challenge.

According to Greene County Safe Communities, the race to win the challenge was tight with Beavercreek High School at 96.73 percent buckled with Xenia Christian High School following close behind at 95.56 percent buckled. Cedarville High School came in third place with 89.33 percent buckled.

“The goal is to reach 100 percent buckled, and the students continue to get closer and closer to that goal,” said Greene County Safe Communities Coordinator Ashley Steveley. “It is great to know that the message to buckle up is being received.”

According to Steveley, the challenge is planned for the schools again in the spring to coincide with local prom celebrations.
