 State Farm Celebrate My Drive Grants

Celebrate My Drive® encourages teens to make positive choices as they begin driving, like 2N2 -- 2 eyes on the road, 2 hands on the wheel. The 100 high schools with the most commitments will be awarded a total of $3.25 million* in grants:


    • 2 schools receive a $100,000 grant and a Grand Prize Concert by a chart-topping musical artist
