GEICO recognizes teens for drug and alcohol prevention programs

GSA GFBy guest blogger Christine Tasher

Fueled by lots of teenage energy and exuberance, award ceremonies took place in several Maryland and Virginia high schools last week when GEICO recognized students’ efforts to promote good decisions – on the road, on dates, at school and in the community.

Working with the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP), GEICO provided $1,000 awards to five student groups to help them continue their work on drug/alcohol prevention efforts.

Winners of the 23rd annual GEICO Student Awards:

  • GSA HCAcademy of the Holy Cross, SADD Group, Kensington, Maryland
  • Eleanor Roosevelt High School, SADD Club, Greenbelt, Maryland
  • Gar-Field Senior High School, SADD Club, Woodbridge, Virginia
  • T.C. Williams High School, Above the Influence Club, Alexandria, Virginia
  • Unified Prevention Coalition Youth Council, Fairfax County, Virginia (will receive award June 8)

Student groups are judged on their leadership, effectiveness, innovation and involvement of both the student body and community in their efforts to prevent underage drinking.

Winning groups have implemented a variety of awareness initiatives including: signing pledges to refrain from alcohol and drug use during prom season; actively using social media to promote healthy lifestyles; organizing alcohol-free teen social events; and hosting re-enactments demonstrating the devastating effects of alcohol.
