Local High Schools Rewarded for Efforts to Raise Seat Belt Use
Battle of the Belt 2012-2013

SIKESTON-After weeks of hard work to raise seat belt use among teens through the Battle of the Belt Challenge, winning Southeast District schools were recently rewarded for their efforts.

Notre Dame Regional High School won the Southeast District's award for the Highest Overall Seat Belt Use, achieving 99.76 percent seat belt use. South Pemiscot High School won the Southeast District's award for the Most Improved Seat Belt Use, increasing their seat belt use from 43.51 percent to 99.42 percent. In addition, Couch High School received the first place award for the statewide, 30-second video competition. The three schools received $500 donated by American Family Insurance to be used for future seat belt educational programs at the schools.

Four Southeast Missouri schools received statewide recognition for seat belt use that reached gold (99-100 percent) or silver (95-98 percent) and received banners to display by the Missouri College of Emergency Physicians. Those schools included:

  • Notre Dame Regional High School, Cape Girardeau-Gold
  • Saxony Lutheran High School, Jackson-Gold
  • Richland High, Essex-Silver
  • South Pemiscot High School, Steele-Silver
