The National Organization for Youth Safety recently announced that Royal Palm Beach High School’s Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) chapter placed second nationally in the 2015 Seat Belts Save Challenge.
Anita Boles, CEO of NOYS, commended SADD sponsor Maureen Witkowski.
“Your video clearly demonstrated the effort that your students put into increasing the seat belt use of their peers and your community,” Boyles said.
Before school, students “pulled vehicles over” to check seat belt usage across two separate days. Usage was significantly higher on the second day because of their efforts.
Teams from more than 90 high schools registered for the challenge.
