High school seniors at more than 59 schools in Georgia, including North Forsyth, can be eligible for a chance to win a new Chevy Cruze after completing 180 days of 98 percent or better attendance this school year.
Students that qualify will be invited to attend the end-of-the-year-event, whose date and location will be released later.
In its first year in Georgia, Chevy Drive for Perfection is an initiative presented by Chevrolet and the Atlanta Chevrolet dealers, including Andean in Cumming, in conjunction with local school boards.
The program was created to give seniors an additional incentive to finish their high school careers strong in order to adequately prepare for post-secondary education or the work force.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, students who have poor attendance for reasons other than illness are more likely to drop out of school or fall behind in the classroom.
“Literacy and education are two initiatives that the local Chevrolet dealers champion through their support of several initiatives in the Southeast region,” said Jerry Williams of Andean.
“The local school boards are charged with the significant task of educating the state’s youth, and our local Chevy dealers are honored to provide support to them and high schools in their communities.”
Attendance will be determined by an eligible student’s attendance record for the first 180 days of the 2010-11 school year as submitted by local education agencies.
In order to select the winner, final lists are developed with eligible students from all participating schools.
All qualified seniors must be present for the reverse drawing to win the Cruze and other prizes.
