On Saturday, October 11, a number of the 35 members of the the YOVASO (Youth of VA Speak Out About Traffic Safety) Club at LBHS came out to wash cars as a fund raiser to enable the group to get door prizes for activities.
The past few weeks have been busy competing in the “Save Your Tailgate Challenge”. The campaign is a competition between participating Virginia schools to increase safety belt educational and awareness activities at the high school level and to increase overall seat belt use among teenagers.
The goal is to help students form a life-long, buckle up habit through education and awareness. A few examples of activities that the students have been doing include, seatbelt checks, banners and signs around the school, school announcements, seatbelt and traffic statistics information handed out at school and at the homecoming football game, car bash, car wash, chalkboard messages and much more. The club hopes to have all students and staff sign the buckle up petition to show their support for seat belt usage.
