CINCINNATI -- Seton High School received a $25,000 grant from State Farm Insurance Company on Monday.

The school participated in State Farm's 'Celebrate My Drive' contest with over 3,500 schools across the country. The contest was based on commitments to safe driving.

Based on votes and feedback on the amount of safe driving commitments made, only the top 100 schools were awarded grants.

Seton High School was the only school in the area to win, placing in the top 30. Over six million safe driving commitments were made of all the registered schools in the competition.

Kim Lust, from State Farm, attended the school assembly on Monday where the student body was surprised with the $25,000 check.

Ten percent of the grant will be used by Seton School to continue their safe driving campaign during the school year.

The rest of the grant money will be given to 'Seton Helping Saints,' the unique school-run philanthropy group that has helped needy families and students throughout Cincinnati.
