KHS I Buckle Up, We Buckle Up Campaign

FCCLA Members in parking lot

Kewanee High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Club has participated in the I Buckle Up, We Buckle Up Campaign. This campaign is supported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to promote seat belt use. The club members observed cars exiting the KHS parking lot and determined that the percentage of drivers buckling up needed to be improved. The campaign began with the club adding a seat belt safety fact to the daily school announcements. The campaign culminated on Friday, November 30th with FCCLA members stopping each car as they exited the KHS parking lot. Each vehicle was given a goodie bag as a thank you for buckling up. Community partner was the Mike Nichols State Farm Insurance Agency who donated the candy for the baggies. Kewanee police also helped with traffic safety during the event.
